Pembroke Pines, FL (Vocus) May 20, 2010
The Internet Merchants Association (IMA) today launched a membership drive aimed at ecommerce practitioners. Beginning today, e-tailers will be able to join this educational association for e-commerce merchants at its Bronze level (a US $99 value) at no cost. The free membership will be valid for one year, at which point members will have the option to renew or upgrade their membership at the regular cost. To join, please visit the IMA’s website.
“While we’re a relatively new association, we’ve already been recognized for the exceptional value we provide to those running e-businesses,” said IMA President Fred Neff. “Since our association was founded, we’ve regularly programmed educational seminars for ASD Las Vegas, one of the country’s largest merchandise trade shows, and feedback has always been excellent.
