Allied Partner

Allied Partner status is the highest level of the Allied Program and is reserved to those companies that are given an exclusive endorsement (unless not legally allowed) through their Association Program.

Allied Partner Annual Fee – $2,000

To be approved as an Allied Partner a company’s program must fit one of the four categories listed below as with the secondary level, but to a much higher extent in savings or non-dues revenue. The potential Partner must be in an industry that has been determined by The Board as one where an exclusivity program makes good business sense.


  • A free product or service is offered to the NJH&LA members
  • A product or service is offered to the members at a significant discount compared to non-members.
  • Sales of a product or service to members are provided at a discount and the association receives a non-dues revenue contribution from the sale to a member
  • Vendor financed membership fees

The Board of Directors (or other approval authority) will first approve an industry for Partner status. For example: Telecommunications. The member services department will then send an introductory solicitation letter to the known players in that market, example AT&T, MCI and Sprint. Upon receipt of their proposals, the Board (or approval authority) will negotiate and choose and Allied Partner. Upon acceptance, they will automatically be entitled to several marketing opportunities and will have their program listed on the primary program collateral piece (see appendix A). Allied Partners will be given the right of first refusal of all marketing activities over Regular Allied and Preferred Allied Members.

In addition to the above benefits to the regular Allied Programs, Allied Partners will receive:

  • One year NJH&LA Membership
  • Copy of the NJH&LA mailing list in a label format
  • Full page advertorial introducing the program to the membership
