Commercial Membership in the ABS
Bamboo-related businesses, take note: the ABS has reinstituted a Commercial membership class, effective 1 January 2020.
In exchange for a higher level of support for the ABS, your company will qualify for a 25% discount on website, magazine and Species Source List advertising rates, and your business logo will be prominently displayed on bamboo.org. You will be permitted to use the ABS logo on your website and in your literature for the duration of the membership. Your company logo on bamboo.org will link to your website, and likewise the ABS logo on your website shall link back to bamboo.org. Commercial memberships must be approved by the ABS Board’s designee and the ABS assumes no liability in either approving or denying the membership.
Commercial members, like other ABS members, will have a vote in ABS elections and business meetings. Note that no Chapter membership is included, and there is no lifetime commercial membership option. If you already are an individual ABS member, you may pay a prorated difference to upgrade to the commercial level.
Now for the cost: $300 for a twelve month commercial membership, plus $10 if you wish a printed copy of BAMBOO Magazine. The dues may be paid in two installments six months apart.
