Becoming a KPBA member comes with an array of benefits. We know that you want to receive value in your membership, so we’re always looking for new ways to ensure that happens!
Peruse a list of benefits below, or check out our slide show!
KPBA Membership is annual and renews annually in the month joined. What can you expect with your annual membership:
Networking Opportunities: Each month (September – May), KPBA holds a Member Meeting at a different venue. We find our members appreciate the opportunity to support new businesses in the community, and appreciate a change of pace. We try to alternate meetings monthly to be either brunch/lunchtime meetings, or evening meetings with dinner or hors d’ouevres. We have guest speakers that bring valuable information and discussion to the table. Our meetings are a great place to network with peers and bring along a friend that might benefit from membership with KPBA.
Events & Outreach: KPBA has strong community involvement and holds numerous events each year. From the Annual Home Show (the largest trade show on the Kenai Peninsula) to a Golf Tournament, Scholarship Program for local youth and charity fundraiser, our members are truly making a difference! Don’t forget to check out our Youth Outreach endeavors here!
Marketing: We love our members and we want the world to know! We offer sponsorship opportunities throughout the year for all of our events, but that’s not all! We highlight our members on our web page, social media platforms, and in our Member Directory (printed twice a year and distributed across the Peninsula). Word of mouth is tremendous in Alaska, but we encourage our members to have an online presence, and if they need help getting one established, we’re here for them! We also help with job postings, ads, branding and design. Members’ success matters to us!
Member Discounts: We’ve added tremendous discounts for our members with reduced Home Show booth rental rates, 20% savings on ALL advertising with KPBA, and access to a local production company with KPBA-Member-Only savings on video production and web design. For those members on the Kenai Peninsula, we have member discounts with Alaska Life Publishing and the Peninsula Clarion, both are KPBA Members. We encourage member-to-member relationships and many of our members extend savings to each other. In this industry, fostering healthy, reliable relationships is crucial. We have the professionals and they want to do business with each other.
We’re always open to new opportunities, advice and suggestions. The world is changing and at KPBA, we know we must hold true to our foundation, but be open to a remodel from time to time. Look forward to new events in the community, more outreach, and more accessibility to our members and resources.
