Training and Education
AIBD Members get 60% off on-demand education!
We’ve increased the discount available to AIBD members when registering for on-demand online education at AIBD.org/continuing-education.

The normal price for a one-hour course is $50, and rather than AIBD members paying $35, that figure has been reduced to $21.

That’s a $29 savings on each course. 

We said 60% off; it’s actually 58%, we rounded up.
One course per month (with a month or two off) means you’ve paid for your annual membership and more.
There are three ways to get ahold of the discount code.
  1. Refer to the welcome email received upon joining AIBD.
  2. Go to AIBD.org/member-center, log in and click the “Discount Codes” tab.
  3. Contact us at 202-750-4900 or info@AIBD.org
Reach 8,400+ AIBD members and professionals each week.
The AIBD has ad space available in this weekly e-newsletter, Monday Minute.
We are also filling the 2021 dedicated blast schedule. A dedicated blast is an email exclusively dedicated to your company and a message sent to over 8,400 AIBD subscribers.
Availability is limited and sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact Kathy Dowdy, Account Manager (kdowdy@associationrevenuepartners.com), if you have any questions or if you’d like to secure your campaign.
Have a triumphant week!
