Have an idea for a program that will help SJBOT members succeed?

We'd love to hear it!

The St. John’s Board of Trade offers many Member-Only Savings Programs. They are exclusive programs that are available to St. John’s Board of Trade members only, aimed at saving our members time and money.

If you have an idea for a Member-Only Savings Program that you would like to offer St. John’s Board of Trade members, please reach out to us. We’re always interested in developing new programs that will provide value to our members.

Please keep in mind that Member-Only Savings Programs are not exclusive sector or industry offerings. At any time, we may offer and promote Savings Programs that are similar in nature or product type. After all, the St. John’s Board of Trade often has multiple members in any one sector or industry and providing equal opportunities to our members is core to who we are.

There are a few required criteria that all Member-Only Savings Programs must meet to be considered for review and adoption:

  1. There must be a return of revenue to the Board of Trade. This may vary from percentage of sales to set dollar amount per year, for example. The Board of Trade can work with you to develop the structure that is most suitable to your organization and offer.
  2. The Savings Program provider/administrator must provide monthly reporting to the Board of Trade so both parties can track member participation and return.
  3. The Savings Program provider/administrator must be a member in good standing with the Board of Trade for the duration of their Member-Only Savings Program agreement.
  4. Each Member-Only Savings Program must remain open for a minimum of three years. The intent of these programs are to help members and provide value, and we need to allow adequate time for the programs to generate awareness and attract interest.

We review applications on a regular basis. Should your proposal be of interest to our team, we will contact you to ask for more details and/or a meeting. Please allow 30-60 days for a response.

If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Eid, Manager of Communications and Engagement: aeid@bot.nf.ca.
