Why Should You Join NACPO?
National Network of Companies
As a national association, NACPO members benefit from a wide and diverse set of experiences and talents. By being geographically widespread, the association members cooperate with each other in ways competitors won’t. It’s amazing the things members share with each other to help and make all the businesses and the industry prosper.
Once you become a member of NACPO, you will immediately have access to our “members only section” of our web site and have at your finger tips the ability to contact anyone of our members by e-mail and/or by telephone.
After you have attended one of our “National Conferences”, and have net worked with other members of our association, you will find that what you take back to your place of business will not only be measured in increased production dollars, you will have a new vigor for the business you have chosen.
At our National Conferences, we discuss many topics of great importance to our industry, including but not limited to, “Marketing with Social Networking”, “Group Business and Workers’ Insurance Polices for our Association”, “Dealers as Independent Sub-Contractors versus Employees”, “Are we really in the Gaming Business or are we Entertainers?”
At one of our conferences, we actually took an anonymous survey to see how much we were all individually spending (per month) for various advertising and business insurance. The analysis of the results of those two surveys helped members save money. This is just another benefit of belonging to our association.
Our association newsletter comes out periodically throughout the year, and is posted on our web site for members and non-members alike. Usually, after our “National Conference”, which almost always takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada, a newsletter is produced by our participating chairperson. This information is gathered from our president (President’s Message) and other members who attended the conference and is then posted on our web site for all to review especially those who were unable to attend.
On our web site, there is a posted roster of all of our participating members. These are the individuals who live and work by the NACPO Code of Ethics, which have been established by our association in order to raise the level of professionalism for our industry. They are avaluable resource for any questions that you may have about our industry.
After you have been a member of our association you will find that you will gain new acquaintances and lifetime friends whom you have a lot in common with. They will assist you in the growth of your company and become another valuable resource. You will learn many things from them and actually may be able to work with them directly or indirectly.
Another benefit of belonging to NACPO is the knowledge gained from other members who share their vendor resources. Associate vendor members are also invited to come and share their new products at our annual conference.
Monitoring of Industry Issues
Each and every one of us, no matter what line of business we are in, at some point in time come up against a legal issue. By, belonging to our association you will find that the issue you have encountered may not be the first time this has happened. And, that there is another member or group of members that have dealt with these matters already. This may be the single most important reason for joining and benefiting from our association.
