Throughout October, the RYA is once again offering double commission to all clubs, training centres and marine organisations signed up to the RYA Joining Point programme.

The Joining Point scheme provides a quick and easy way for those organisations registered as RYA Joining Points to spread the word about RYA membership and encourage their members and customers to join the association.

“We ran the double commission offer back in April and 43 of our registered Joining Points took part earning nearly £1,000 between them. These organisations are vital in helping us grow our membership base, which in turn supports the work does in ensuring legislators, regulators and other authorities understand and take account of recreational boating activity. Membership funds are also reinvested in to the organisation to help with participation, cruising and government affairs and performance activities”, explained, Conor Swift, RYA Membership Development Manager.

As well as supporting our lobbying activities there are many other great benefits of RYA membership including access to specialist cruising, legal and technical boating advice from our in-house experts, exclusive offers and discounts from over 70 member reward partners, helping members keep down the cost of their boating; as well as all the latest news and information.

Throughout October registered Joining Points will receive double the standard commission values of the scheme, receiving £20 commission for every family membership or £15 for every personal membership they sign up. The commission can then be fed back in to their organisation. In 2017 the top performing Joining Point earnt £1,297.50 in commission for their organisation.

“The Joining Point scheme is a real win for all involved. The Joining Points earn valuable commission to feedback in to their organisation, the new members get to enjoy all the great benefits RYA membership affords them and the RYA sees its membership flourish”, Conor added.

Existing RYA Joining Points don’t need to do anything to register for this offer, the double commission will automatically be applied to their account in the November payment run. All they need to do is tell their customers about the benefits of RYA membership and get them to sign up; it’s that simple.

Existing Joining Points requiring more promotional materials should email joiningpoint@rya.org.uk quoting their Joining Point reference number or the name of their club or organisation to receive further membership forms.

Each Joining Point pack provides the club or centre with the possibly of earning up to £1,000 in commission, up to £2,000 during the October special promotion, depending upon the number of members signed up.
