Chapter Membership Rebate Programs
The Association recognizes members and Chapters dedicated to membership growth through a variety of membership programs:
NEW SPONSOR PROGRAM

Each member who sponsors a total of five new members each year receives an AAAA Coffee Mug in appreciation of the effort and is eligible to win the AAAA's "TOP GUN" Contest.
