Score Big

 

Score BIG! and Win the Dues Renewal Game

 

Why are smart clubs already collecting their dues renewal payments?

 

Because they want to have all their members renewed by the September 30 deadline and they know that starting early is the key to success.

 

Here's another reason: Our Score BIG! promotion is back! Here's how your club can get the most points for your member renewal payments. All payments must be entered online at TI by September 25 to count.


All clubs with dues renewals of at least 70% of their base membership will receive a special Score BIG! ribbon.

 

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-M2YWoXm1rHU/Ugq0ZiBZQ7I/AAAAAAAACrk/RRjOsYZ0xG0/s200/score_goal.gif

70% of base membership renewed: 3 points. You've made a field goal, but why settle for that?

 

80% of base membership renewed: 6 points. Touchdown! This is a good score but there's room for improvement.

 

90% of base membership renewed: 7 points. Touchdown with the extra point! This is a winning score — a healthy number of members means a strong club that can win a championship.

 

Here's how your points can equal rewards:

3 points = Eligible clubs will be entered in a drawing for a $25 TI Store gift certificate. Three prizes will be awarded.

6 points = Eligible clubs will be entered in a drawing for a $50 TI Store gift certificate. Three prizes will be awarded.

7 points = Eligible clubs will be entered in a drawing for a $100 TI Store gift certificate. Three prizes will be awarded.

Remember, all payments must be entered online at TI by September 25 to count.
