Associate Partnership – A Relationship Building Marketing Outreach Program


Becoming an Associate Partner not only pledges your support to this important organization, it gives you access to our Membership.


This Partnership Program will benefit three distinct categories of Members including:

  • Vendor Partners;
  • Brand Partners; and
  • Community Partners

Rather than delineate the levels of above categories of Members with precious metals or gemstones and cookie cutter marketing benefits, our unique Partnership Programs can be customized for those spanning a wide range of budgets and seeking real working relationships with our Members.


The four highly customizable Partner Levels are as follows:

  • Principal Partners;
  • Major Partners;
  • Supporting Partners; and
  • Community Supporting Partners

We are seeking to identify and connect with Vendors, Brands and members of the Action Sports Community that truly care about the health and well-being of the Board Sports Retailer and Lifestyle while having a need to grow and strengthen the relationships of their specialty retailer customer base.


In summary, being a Brand Partner, Vendor Partner or Community Partner of any level offers you:

Targeted Outreach

Your brand message heard loud and clear by our members through targeted marketing efforts.

Insider Industry Knowledge

Invaluable information to help you break into the action sports retail market.

Recognition by a Captive Audience

The attention of loyal, core retailers who will take notice of your support.
