2024 Showcase Your Byway Membership Program
The NSBF “Showcase Your Byway Contest” is our annual Membership Program to encourage new and renewed NSBF memberships for the coming year. A byway organization or a DMO membership paid by mid-December for the coming year is automatically entered into the monthly “Showcase Contest.” Read our FAQs about the program here – https://nsbfoundation.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/2024-Final-Showcase-FAQs.pdf
Member Benefit: First Friday Fellowship Opportunities
All NSBF Members and the Byway Leaders that represent Byway Organizations, DMO’s, Businesses and Byway Collections are invited to participate in the six “First Friday Fellowship” opportunities in 2023 via Zoom. The six chats will be held at 3pm ET on the first Fridays of Feb, Apr, June, Aug, Oct and Dec. The format will begin with a featured topic or announcement and continue with discussions and chats about hot topics in the byway community. NSBF Executive Director Sharon Strouse will moderate the ‘chat.’ Members will receive an email with the Zoom link before each meeting from email@example.com, no pre-registration necessary.
2023 Membership IPW Byway Representation Opportunity
The National Scenic Byway Foundation offers our members the chance to be represented on the prestigious “federal row” at IPW – the largest appointment-based travel trade show in the United States. NSBF is a member of the US Travel Association, which allows us the opportunity to represent byways. We feature the byways who pay to participate with the tour operators and in the media marketplace, including information and itineraries on our dedicated website for the international tour operators: www.comeclosertoamerica.com
Working through our Federal partners, the National Scenic Byway Foundation is able to offer this opportunity to our members for $500 for an Individual Byway and $750 for a Byway Collection. Knowledgeable and experienced Byway DMO representatives will be on-site to represent your byway — no travel needed! Deadline to commit is March 6. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org now to answer questions.
See the IPW Commitment Form link below.
In view of the fast-paced changes that are currently taking place with Byways, a strong membership is very important to the National Scenic Byway Foundation, so we can help strengthen more Byways. The Foundation receives no Federal funding, which makes membership even more important, as we continue the push to have Byway funding restored.
If you are in a position to donate to the Foundation or sponsor one or more programs, that’s even better. Your contribution is tax deductible. Please contact our Executive Director, Sharon Strouse, for sponsor and donor opportunities. (email@example.com)
