    Other than the website, how do you propose to raise awareness of members that offer discounts to MABA members?

    The businesses that offer discounts to MABA members could use the Announcements portion of the meeting to relay their message to the members on occasion.  I think it is the responsibility of the MABA member to build the relationships with other members to promote their products/services and associated discounts.  As an organization, our website it the only real tool we have to assist.

    Perhaps we could make a sheet of the discounts and put it on the member display table.

    Anna's idea on the sheet with the discounts on it is a good one, but I am concerned about the amount of people that DO NOT look at the table.

    We need to do a better job promoting the Member Table at the meeting. Perhaps we can bring balloons and put them by the table? Perhaps the discount sheet could be promoted and people will go to the table and realize, how can I get on that sheet too? We can promote it on the Agenda, talk up during MABA biz. Perhaps a discussion on how to make that happen at the next board meeting. Good idea.

    Moving the info. closer to the members by using one of the taller tables (where the speakers stand) would increase the visibility.  Recently, I just found out I could put flyers, etc. there.  Maybe most don't know about it. Suggest explaining the purpose & how it works at the next meeting. (also gives the members an area to promote discounts)

    I was not aware of the table that is available to display business cards or discounts offered to MABA members.  As a very new member to MABA, i have a hard time discovering all those things on my own. A "new member starting pack" could be useful.  

    Having all that content available also online could be great,  for people that could not attend that meeting or maybe they forgot the discount offered. I want to offer to wave the enrollment fee for MABA members($50), but how could I communicate that to members?

    I believe that there is a new member packet that lists all of the benefits and opportunities for those who join.  It is usually handed out at one of the first meetings after joining.
