Membership Campaign Kicks Off

That's right, for every new member you recruit from now until the end of February, you can receive a little something for yourself. Each new Professional Individual member (rate $160) earns you $25. Recruit a new Commercial Company or a new Agency Member and you can receive $50!

Easy as 1-2-3

Share your FRPA membership experience and recruit a new member. A new member is an individual or a company that has not been a member of FRPA ever, or someone who has not been a member since 2012; and individuals cannot be a complimentary member included with an Agency or Commercial member package.

Have the individual you are speaking with complete a Professional Membership Application, an Agency Membership Application, or a Commercial Member Application, marking you as the recruiter on the Application.

Once we receive the payment and process the membership, we will contact you to claim your incentive.

Your incentive can come to you in the form of cash, gift card, or a credit for an FRPA event to be held before the end of 2015.
