MAR and GJARA Board of Directors have initiated early merger discussions to assess and explore the business and industry circumstances, opportunities and challenges associated with a potential merger. A sample from the committee's Q&A follows. Read more here.
Q. What are the advantages of a merger for our members?
A. A merged association is a growing organization that can continue to provide and expand upon the delivery of programming and services including advocacy, education, professional standards, community engagement, leadership development, research and market data. In addition, we believe that there are cost savings to be gained through staffing, technology, vendor relations, logistics, events and more. Again, we believe that unification of our associations at this time may allow us to shape our future on our terms while continuing to stay ahead of both the industry competition and requirements of our state and national association partners.
Second quarter dues are payable through your website HUB, and due by May 9 to avoid late fees.
Please see the Membership Dues page on our website for a breakdown of annual and quarterly billing. For 2021, the Board of Directors waived first quarter dues for all members.
*As always, those who have already selected to pay these dues annually, please disregard this message.
