Benefits Partner Program for Businesses
The Driftless Region Bicycle Coalition (DRBC) invites your business to become a DRBC Benefits Partner. This exciting program is a great way for businesses to support a cause they believe in and promote their business to the members of the DRBC. See already participating businesses here.
What is a DRBC Benefits Partner?
A DRBC Benefits partner is any business (profit or non-profit) that agrees to provide discounted goods or services to the members of the Driftless Region Bicycle Coalition. Many businesses offer a direct percentage based discount on services or products. This kind of discount generally ranges from 10-15%. You may specify a particular service or item, but being overly specific or limited may reduce the likelihood of members actually using it. Some business may choose to actually give a product or service at no charge one time or annually.
How does this help my business?
First and foremost, every member of DRBC will receive information about your participation in this program. Your business will also be listed on our website under our Membership Benefits section. You will also be recognized at our annual meeting. Finally you will have the opportunity to have a business card or small flier sent in our new member packet. We will also occasionally promote program participants via other print and electronic sources during membership drives and communications.
How will I know someone is a member of the DRBC?
