MEMBER-GET-A-MEMBER AND BE REWARDED!

No one knows how beneficial iTIP membership is to Iowa’s tourism & hospitality industry better than current iTIP members.

Consider sharing your iTIP membership experience and get rewarded for doing so. Through the Member-Get-A-Member program, iTIP rewards your efforts in recruiting new members.

How does it work?

  1. Direct a potential member to https://iowatravelindustry.org/membership/ to join.
  2. Ask your friend to enter your organization’s name in the referral space on their application.
  3. Tell another friend…and another…and another…to earn rewards.


For each referral, your organization will receive a $25 discount on your membership renewal for the following year. (Note: If your membership rate is $150 and you recruit 6 new member organizations, your membership renewal the following year will be free.) There is no limit on the amount of rewards you can earn.
