    BOC Membership Cards


    These are going to be sweet! I have seen the draft design and it looks awesome. These will be printed on high quality plastic cards, very similar to what your credit card looks like. Each one will be sequentially numbered.

    First come first serve. :wink:

    Example image to be posted at a later date.

    The concept image was leased to the BOC for two years with permission granted for extensions indefinitely with verbal request.

    Image was sent to a graphic artist who added some color and a final touch.

    Response to a private mail:

    This is a BOC Member card. It is a one time fee for the card and at the discretion of the member if they would like to have one or not.

    The card “is not” an indicator that the BOC is changing to a member only access / organization.

    One of the benefits to the BOC will be the ability to show potential sponsors an active card list to acquire better services for the membership in the form of giveaways and hopefully discounts.

    The BOC will still be free to all, as always.

    Paul, Thanks for the Info, I will gladly pay a one time fee to cover the design cost and the cost for printing. I understand that this IS NOT a yearly membership fee. Am I correct.

    I know you are still working on this but could you give me a ball park cost to the membership?

    Top,

    You are correct.

    The acquisition of the card is up to each member.

    Currently, a reduced rate has been negotiated on a room at the Catfish Expo in 2009 upon the presentation of the member card to the Expo Center staff.

    Paul, the way I am reading your post is that the membership will get discount from most of the B.O.C. sponsors, if they present a membership card.

    Now, how many places can you be a card-carrying member of such an outstanding community without being forced to pay stiff annual dues?
    You can't beat this with an ugly stick! :wink:

    Thanks All,

    I think you all will really like them. Once / if the membership card gains a little steam, it will help out with credibility for the organization, and hopefully bring some perks to the membership.

    The turning point, was the negotiating for cheaper rates for members at the 2009 Expo. One of the 1st questions / statements was, "we can use your member cards"......

    We will keep cost down as low as possible.
