New Benefits for NICA Members
A key benefit for all National Inventory Certification Association members is the opportunity to have a professionally written press release prepared announcing the achievement of certification. This press release is distributed to national press release sites and posted on the NICA blog. Additionally, the blog post and press releases are shared on the association’s social media Facebook and Twitter accounts. The member also receives a pdf file of the press release to send to local media outlets if they choose.
All of these efforts help promote each achievement and provide additional recognition for each NICA member who chooses to achieve certification.
Realizing the value of this type of exposure for the member as well as the association, we have added two new benefits that provide additional promotion opportunities for our members.
Press releases for NICA members
Adding to the current press release benefit for announcing certification, NICA will now also write industry-related press releases for all members. Member Jo Soard recently achieved her Graduate Personal Property Appraiser (GPPA) and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisals Practice (USPAP) designations, as was the first to receive this new benefit. She provided the information to NICA and the press release was created, distributed, and posted for her, as well as being placed as one of our blog posts.
In addition to becoming a certified appraiser, some of our members are also professional organizers, photo organizers, project managers, insurance agents, etc. When milestones are achieved, if you add a service to your home inventory business, or want to announce any other industry-related activity, let us know and we will have a professionally written press release created and distributed for any member who requests this benefit.
Gain more exposure by being a contributing blogger for the NICA blog! In our continued effort to provide education and valuable knowledge for the inventory industry, NICA has chosen to offer a new benefit for members who enjoy writing. Do you already write blog a blog? Do you write newsletters or articles about the home inventory industry? If not, do you want to start?
We encourage all members who have a talent for writing to consider this. Along with your article, we will include your bio, photo, and link to your website. If interested, contact the NICA office and we will provide the details for you.
