Share Article

Affinity Center International and Meridian One joined forces to offer a new benefit to association members. AchieveLinks, the association industry's only business rewards program, rewards association members for business and personal purchases they make every day. Through this agreement, Meridian One associations can add value to their membership and increase member engagement by implementing the AchieveLinks program.

AchieveLinks is the association industry’s first business rewards program. It allows associations to offer their members a new benefit of membership and earn non-dues revenue at no cost to either party.

Meridian One’s associations can offer a new benefit to their members, thanks to an agreement with Affinity Center International (ACI), the creator of the AchieveLinks rewards program.

AchieveLinks is the association industry’s first business rewards program. It allows associations to offer their members a new benefit of membership and earn non-dues revenue at no cost to either party.

The program offers a growing list of more than 800 Merchant Partners with whom members can earn LinksSM Reward Points. The online member portal caters to their business and personal buying needs, making it quick and efficient to order the products and services they need to do business. On the same site, members redeem Links to enhance their businesses or for personal use on things like travel, merchandise, association dues or conference fees, high adventure experiences and more.

Alexandria-VA based, Meridian One creates, markets and manages member benefit programs for trade and professional associations throughout the United States. The company has nearly three decades of experience in affinity marketing.

“Our partnership with ACI is right in line with our commitment to the association marketplace and our mission to deliver the best-in-business member benefit programs. ACI has experience in and is committed to the association marketplace. They’ve developed a robust website that will not only allow members to shop and save, but earn and redeem as well,” says Mickey Herbert, Vice President of Meridian One Corporation. “This is one of those programs that will deliver true member value, helping associations retain and recruit members.”

The ACI-Meridian One agreement means that Meridian One’s association clients can implement the benefit quickly and easily. ACI provides all of the backend support for the AchieveLinks program so that associations can focus on their core missions rather than spend time facilitating a new program.

“This relationship allows both companies to work together to quickly provide associations with turnkey loyalty programs for member retention and new revenue sources,” said Jeff Crapo, ACI Champion of Business and Partnership Development.

The AchieveLinks rewards program provides a multitude of benefits to associations of all sizes, especially smaller associations not usually served by incentive and member benefit sponsor companies.

“We are very pleased to work with Meridian One because our companies share a mutual vision of helping associations succeed,” adds David Carrithers, ACI Founder, President and Managing Director. “AchieveLinks gives associations another tool to help their members enhance and grow their businesses,” he continues. “Through this agreement, Meridian One’s associations can easily implement the program and expect all the support ACI provides to its clients.”
