Throughout March if your club, training centre or marine organisation is signed up to the RYA Joining Point programme you'll earn double the commission for every new RYA member you sign up.

Registered Joining Points will receive double the standard commission values of the scheme for the whole of March, receiving £20 commission for every family membership or £15 for every personal membership they sign up. The commission earned can then be fed back in to their organisation.

"The Joining Point programme is a real win for everyone involved. The Joining Points earn valuable commission; in 2018 the top performing Joining Point earnt over £1,600 in commission for their organisation, new members get to enjoy the benefits of being a member, and the RYA sees its membership numbers grow", explained RYA Membership Operations Officer, Gemma Garrett

"Growth of our membership is vital in supporting the work we do in ensuring legislators, regulators and other authorities understand and take account of recreational boating activity. Membership funds are also reinvested in to the organisation to help with participation, cruising and government affairs and performance activities", Gemma added.

All they need to do is tell their customers about the benefits of RYA membership and get them to sign up; it's that simple.
