ASCCA is proud to officially announce the launch of its 2017 Membership Liaison Program. This door-to-door membership recruitment program was proposed by ASCCA's Membership Committee, and approved by the Board of Directors earlier this year.
In addition to supporting the Membership Committee's 2017 100-Plus goal of recruiting 100 new members, the purpose of this new endeavor is to gain and retain new members by cultivating relationships by emphasizing ASCCA membership value, advocacy efforts, and to provide business resources.
All potential Liaisons must meet certain minimum requirements, and fill out an online application and survey form. For compensation details, as well as information on who is eligible to become an ASCCA Liaison, please
