An individual membership is issued and invoiced to the person. This is a membership specifically for marketing consultants or individuals wanting access to member discounts for professional development for themselves. A company membership gives all named staff members access to the benefits and discounts and can be transferred if a team member leaves the organisation. 
A company membership gives many more benefits in relation to access to our Advice Line services and the ability to promote their business through sharing relevant topics of interest content through our Blog and Social channels. Members are welcome to submit this content to our Marketing Manager for review. 

Regional Membership is an individual membership exclusive for people living outside of New Zealand’s three largest cities. 

You will be able to log into our website using your nominated business email address. The system will recognise you as a member, give you automatic access to member only content and apply your member discounts.

Yes, the membership is valid for one year from date of issue and will automatically renew for the next annual 12-month period. If you wish to retire your membership you can do this through your dashboard on our website or by contacting the MA directly.

This will depend on the type of membership tier you have joined on. *A Not-for-Profit or Charity membership can add as many team members as you need.

No, an individual membership is non-transferrable.

The member discount only applies to you. If you require additional tickets on a regular basis you may look to upgrade to a company membership.
