Recruitment Incentives

The ACBL recognizes that bridge teachers and club officials are its primary source of new members. Many incentives are in place for new members including a New Member packet sent when your students first join followed by four issues of the New Member Newsletter and then four issues of an eNewsletter for 2nd year members called "Duplicate Insight." The ACBL shows its appreciate to teachers and club official with a monetary reward. A $100 gift certificate to Baron Barclay Bridge Supplies is earned every time a teacher or a club official recruits 25 new members during a calendar year and a bonus check of $500 is awarded for 100 members recruited over time. In addition, all teachers and club officials are invited to attend ACBL's Thank You party held on the first Friday of each NABC. Thank you, teachers, for all you do!
