According to the Center for Association Leadership, there are more than 90,000 trade and professional associations in the United States, and those organizations represent millions of members who own or make decisions for businesses in every industry.
The operations of business and professional associations are partly or wholly reliant on membership dues and professional fees paid by their members — and that involves time-consuming processes like recurring billing reminders, collections and accounting. At the same time, associations must continually reach out for new members — and that requires separate processes and additional employee effort. This can lead to confusion and frustration for both members and staff.
Association partnership programs offered by 1st US Merchant Services® focus on collaborative, customized solutions streamline payment processing and improve back-office and marketing operations. It’s a highly effective way to maximize member retention and satisfaction. At the same time, we provide association members with exclusive offers and programs created just for their businesses — and available only through our partnership with their association. Everyone benefits.
