    Sima is having a membership drive as we speak and with $50 off you have no excuse's not to join. Get ready for next winter now and you''ll be very thank full you did. Did you know that Sima has a mentor program, when you first join you will be contacted by a "buddy" and he will help you answer any questions you have. Sima has contracts, production times, application rates, training videos all at your finger tips. Tell them Dave Snyder from Forest Lawn Farms Ltd. reffered you and if we ever meet the beer is on me.:drinkup: http://sima.org/registernewmembers.cfm

    So what you are telling me is, after I join, you will then be my "buddy?" Thanks Dave.... Does it matter if it's Canada or the US?

    It's $130 if your snow and ice revenue is under $250k.

    Yes I get a $50 referral fee as well as you get $50 off, so I thought what the hell it's a great deal for all of us. Memberships with the discount are $130 and if you come to Sima I'll buy you a bunch of beers at the school of dance. :D

    The buddy system, is in place just to help the new guy get familiar with SIMA. It is one of several ways to get familiar with SIMA When I joined SIMA I did not know anybody there. My buddy welcomed me, and was there for any questions I had. Right of the bat I felt more at ease, not so much an outsider.
    Now sometimes it can take awhile for the buddy to contact you, we can be a little busy at times. In your welcome package you get your Buddy's contact information. Feel free to contact them. You can always contact any other member of SIMA if you prefer.
    Welcome to SIMA :waving:

    No it works on the honor system.
    Its a contest SIMA is having right now. Since the symposium is being held in Louisville Kentucky. The contest is like a horse race, every time you get someone to join SIMA, your company horse moves ahead. The new member and the referring member each get $50.00. The company that finishes in first place gets his expenses paid at this years symposium. Its all about having fun, with a little incentive.

    Way to go JD, at this pace you will be unbeatable by the end of the month.:drinkup:

    Regular price is $180, sign up before the membership drive is over and it's $130 whether you have someone refer you or not. However, when you give another member's name as the person who refers you that person will receive $50.
