  • Savings Programs - access to discounts for products and services such as Constant Contact Email Services and Supervised Fuel Group fueling discounts.
  • Business Affiliation - offers a professional appearance to consumers and business owners about your company, allowing you to promote your advocacy as an industry supporter.  Your dues help to support the industry.

  • Competitive Edge - delivers up-to-date information on industry trends, business intelligence, and best practices, helping you to avoid costly mistakes and expenses that result from not using the most current practices.  Tap into knowledge. Odds are that someone, somewhere, in the industry has already discovered the solution to a vexing problem in your particular niche.
  • Industry Experts - access to thought-leaders and mentors who can provide you with key business intelligence, helping you manage your business more effectively to achieve better top and bottom line results.
