What is included and excluded in the Annual Program Pass?
Members who purchase the Annual Program Pass may attend educational programs (online or in person) offered by their designated Local, and may also attend programs offered by other West Region Locals if they are traveling, including special programs (e.g., LMA Next, webinars, brown bags/roundtables, etc.). The Annual Program Pass does NOT include socials or Regional Conferences (e.g., CME, Tech West).
Why the switch to charging for programming?
Historically, all chapters that merged into LMA West charged for educational programs. In the summer of 2017, the West Region board determined that a limited amount of financial reserves should be reinvested at the local level. Therefore, it was determined that making programing complimentary for 18-months was the best use of excess reserve funds. This was always intended to be temporary.
How do I add on the programming?
Simply click ‘add’ on the renewal form that you will be receiving electronically and/or by hard copy. The $75 programming will be paid with your yearly membership cost.
What if I want to add on the annual program pass later?
You have until March 31, 2019 to add the annual program pass. After that, only monthly charges will be available.
Why would I want to add on the Annual Program Pass?
Members benefit from the annual program pass in the following ways:
- Cost savings: At $75, the Add-On pays for itself if you attend two programs in 2019. After that, all educational programs are free!
- Less paperwork: This is the easiest way to attend any program region-wide throughout 2019 without the administrative burden of getting a check cut every time you want to go to an LMA program.
- Predictability: Firms, and other organizations, do not have to worry about individuals requesting reimbursement to attend programs or need to decide which members can attend what programs. All members of the West region who opt in can attend all educational programming.
