In the last 35 years we have focused on one thing and that is helping members and businesses increase their revenue and we want 2020 to be the best year yet for you and your chapter.

So we are offering from 1/20/2020 to 3/20/2020 the following opportunities that you and your chapter can take advantage of to increase your membership and ultimately you and your fellow members business this year.

We will take care of the Application Fee if:
