Assure Program



LOOKING FOR THE GREATEST MEMBERSHIP ROI? LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THE ALFN ASSURE PROGRAM. MEMBER REWARDS, ASSURED. 
ALFN membership is a big investment and our goal is to maximize your results and help ensure that each member is getting what they need out of their membership. Our programs, events and publications rely on member volunteerism and sponsorship so that's exactly what the ASSURE program takes into consideration: your level of volunteerism and sponsorship dollars. The greater the volunteer participation, the lower the sponsorship threshold becomes in order to reap the benefits of the ASSURE program. 

Each member starts at the same place: a goal of $2,500 in either spent sponsorship dollars and/or earned volunteer credits. Here's what earns you those volunteer credits:
  • Participation in an ALFN Member Group 
  • Content contributions to an ALFN publication, including:
    • ANGLE Magazine
    • WILLed Newsletter
    • Legal Updates
    • Ad hoc publications like Regulatory Comments, Congressional Briefing Materials, Industry Letters, Amicus Briefs, etc.
  • Event attendance (ANSWERS, TEACH, WILLPOWER and Advocacy Day)
  • Participating as a speaker on an ALFN Webinar
  • Board of Directors, Advisory Board or Task Force participation
  • Successfully referring a new ALFN member
  • Successfully securing a new mortgage servicer attendee at an ALFN event
Each one of these activities is given a $250 credit deducted from the overall goal. A member organization can complete ten of these activities and complete their goal or pair a limited number of these activities with a sponsorship spend and meet the goal that way.

THE PAY-OFF
Members participating in the ASSURE Program and who successfully meet their credit and/or sponsorship goal will be invited to a special ASSURE Reception duing ANSWERS. Invited guests include members who have met the ASSURE requirements and all mortgage servicing attendees of the conference. The ASSURE Reception will be a requirement of any mortgage servicer accepting ALFN Scholarship funds. This closed-door client networking reception is a one-hour "thank you" to reward members who exhibit the highest commitment to the industry and volunteer their time, expertise and support to the ALFN.

THE FINE PRINT
Each year after ANSWERS the slate is swiped clean and the program restarts for every member. Tracking occurs between July 31 and August 1 each year. Enhanced or Profile Listing purchases in the ALFN Member Directory, serving as a panelist at an ALFN event and on-site TEACH program participation are exempt and do not count towards the accrual of ASSURE credits. Credits are awarded based on membership for attorney/trustee members and are awarded per single participant per state, so a single state attorney/trustee member can only receive one credit per their one state of membership while a two-state member may receive two credits for separate participants. ASSURE rewards are an automatic benefit of ALFN Enterprise Membership.
