AITP Atlanta Chapter Presents...
Message from AITP National Board Member John Kosar E-mail
Written by John Kosar   

Expand our Partner Program and join us on September 10th for a fun filled AITP Cruise to Cozumel aboard the Carnival Victory!

John KosarIt has been an enjoyable and humbling experience to serve the AITP Atlanta Chapter over the past 10+ years in various roles from membership chair to president.  In 2015, I was elected to the AITP National board to serve as a Director of the Southern District and to sit on the Association Development Committee.

The Association Development committee is responsible for achieving a $50k year non-dues revenue goal.  Non-dues revenue is any revenue not associated with the membership fees. For example, GEICO is a national partner and all AITP members receive a discount – I personally saved 25% on my home and auto insurance and encourage all members to do the same!  GEICO in turn pays a small percentage back to AITP.  Paid job postings on our website is also a non-dues revenue generator and we currently have a line of site for $25k revenue this year.

We are introducing a new Partner Program package that sweetens the value to our partners.  For a flat fee of $2000 a partner receives three Professional Memberships, Logo representation on the AITP website under partners tab, and an article featured to our chapter leaders in our e-newsletter, ‘On the Move’.  In addition, the partner also selects either a dedicated featured article to all members in our e-newsletter, ‘Information Executive’ or a dedicated webinar to all members.

It is simple, easy to sell, and easy for our partners to buy - we even accept credit cards.

Now for more great news for all our members.  We are combining the Partner Program package with the Region 7 Cruise and Convention Campaign to create a promotion for any AITP member to earn a four day free cruise on the Carnival Victory that departs on September 10th and sails from Miami, to Key West, then to Cozumel and back.

Beginning June 1st and ending July 31st any AITP member that sells two Partner Program packages will receive a free exterior cabin.  This includes double occupancy so either have the whole room to yourself and bring a spouse or friend for free!  Remember earlier how I mentioned the Partner Program package includes three new AITP Professional Memberships? Well, if you sell two Partner Program packages that equals six new members for AITP.  When those six new members complete their profiles on the AITP website you receive free airfare (up to $500 value).

Convinced yet?  That is not all, the Association Committee will be hosting a Webinar on June 5th to outline this new Partner Package program and Region 7 Cruise and Convention Campaign.  This is your opportunity to learn exactly how to participate and sell the package.  If anyone attending the webinar is seriously interested in making the effort to receive a free cruise we will personally provide a short list of interested Partners who have reached out to AITP and need to be contacted.

Join us in Miami on September 10th for a fun filled Region 7 Cruise and Convention aboard the Carnival Victory and help us expand our Partner Program, grow our membership, and increase our non-dues revenue!

See you there!
