MOLINE, Ill. — The American Rental Association is offering monetary incentives for representatives of associate-member businesses who recruit rental companies to join the association.
ARA is offering the incentive to boost attendance at ARA conventions, which in turn will strengthen suppliers' opportunities to market their service and equipment offerings.
Reps and distributors from associate-member companies who call on rental centers will receive a $75 award from ARA for every new member they recruit.
Information on the new program is available at ARA's Web site www.ararental.org.
