Associate Member Film Festival
Associate members are invited to submit an entertaining 2-3 minute video that highlights your company's unique attributes and special distinctions. Don't worry about making it professional—the best videos are made in just a few hours with an inexpensive handheld camera. The only requirement is to have fun and be creative! The film will be shown during the General Session, so this is a great way to showcase your offerings to potential customers--best of all, it is FREE!

To participate, just email an .avi, .mov, .mpeg2, or .mp4 entries to Eddie Leary no later than September 14, 2017. If files are larger than 10 MG, please use Dropbox.com or YouSendIt.com for sending the files. Films will be combined with other member videos on a first-come, first-served basis. If we are unable to feature your video at the upcoming meeting, it will run at the next conference. Associate members are allowed to submit one video per calendar year.
