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 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 to reap the benefits of the ASSURE program.
 
Each member starts at the same place with goals ranging from $2,500 - $7,500+, in either spent sponsorship dollars and/or earned volunteer credits. Listed below is what earns you those volunteer credits. Each one of these activities is given a $250 credit. A member organization can complete ten of these activities to reach Level I, twenty activities to reach Level II and thirty activities for Level III.
 
During the ANSWERS ASSURE Luncheon each year, an award will be given to members who has gone above and beyond in their volunteerism and support of the ALFN throughout the past year. The members with the greatest amount of volunteerism and support of the ALFN over the past year will be receiving this award.
  • Participation in an ALFN Member Committee (max of $750 credit)
  • Leadership Role (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Committee Leaders) in an ALFN Member Committee.
  • Content contributions to an ALFN publication, including:
  • ALFN Event Attendance (ANSWERS, Bankruptcy Intersect, Foreclosure Intersect, WILLPOWER)
  • Participating as a speaker on an ALFN Webinar
  • Serving as a member of the Board of Directors, Advisory Board or Task Force
  • Successfully referring a new ALFN member. Member applicant should list your name on the membership application, so we can track who they were referred by.
