Orlando Central Florida Chapter, STC
Hi everyone! As you know, I’ve been your Treasurer for the past two years, so let’s have some Fun with Numb3rs! This space will be the forum for all subjects monetary. If you have any questions, send them my way at Treasurer@stc-orlando.org.
This month I would like to talk FUNDRAISING! As you know, we are a non-profit and without donations from our members and friends like YOU, we would not be able to bring you exciting technical presentations and professional development programs. How can you help? I’m glad you asked!
Amazon.com Associates Program
Since 2003, your Chapter has participated in the Amazon.com Associates Program. We place a banner on our home page, and on Memo to Members, that contains our personalized landing page to Amazon.com. If you use our banner to get to Amazon.com and complete a transaction, your Chapter gets a cut of the proceeds, with no added cost to you. No coupons to clip, no codes to put in — it is automatic.
Here is the OCF Chapter’s Amazon Link so you can bookmark it (and don’t forget to use it after you bookmark it!): http://www.amazon.com/?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0&link_code=hom&tag=orlandochapte-20
The banner is at the bottom right corner of your Chapter’s website, www.stc-orlando.org, and is pictured below.
