Why should my organization join?

Sports ETA provides members with the tools necessary to be effective in the sports events and tourism industry. Whether your organization is just exploring this very special segment or you are one of our founding members, Sports ETA can help you in day-to-day business activities.

Is membership individual or organizational?

All memberships are organization-based; therefore, the entire staff of the member organization may take advantage of the benefits of membership. You may have as many contacts listed in your organization’s membership account as you have staff. Each staff member will be assigned a unique login and password to access the website and customize communication preferences. Individual memberships are not available.

What is the membership year?

Our membership year is in conjunction with the calendar year (January - December).

Since membership is calendar year, are membership dues prorated?

When an organization first joins Sports ETA, dues are paid in full. Upon the first of January the following year, the organization will receive an invoice for a pro-rated dues amount based on the date joined. In the third year or membership, and continuing forward, the organization will receive an invoice from the Sports ETA office for the full dues amount.
