…Compass Club awards 3-for-FREE memberships.

WASHINGTON, DC – AIBD Professional Member Alan Austin (CA) and Certified Members Richard


Emigh (CA) and Mike Keesee (FL) are the 2013 recipients of the 3-for-Free recruitment award. To qualify, Alan, Richard and Mike each introduced AIBD to at least three new Professional Level members. The “3-for-Free” membership recruitment award recognizes Professional level members who recruit three new Professional level members during a twelve-month membership period. 3-for-Free recipients earn their next year’s national dues waived; a $360 savings!

Compass Club_smallIn addition, the Compass Club welcomes four new members, Don Brooks (TX) Jon Carey (TX), Ron Danne (OH) and Kevin Holdridge (NC). In terms of AIBD Society totals, Florida, California and Texas raked in 39 of the total 71 points awarded by the Compass Club during the 2012/2013 fiscal year (June 1 to July 30). Although 71 total points represents a huge increase over 2011 and 2012 reports – 51 and 49 respectively – the total is short of the Club’s 13 year annual average of 124 points. “This is a substantial turn in the right direction.” says AIBD Executive Director Steve Mickley.
