MAIN-MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION

I'm seeking 100 members to serve as the Main Membership.

Main Members will be supporters of the cause (of allowing fans and endorsement-seekers to pay college athletes) and who are invited to join and/or are in businesses and/or officially represent organizations that put them into touch with that part of the public sector that would potentially be most interested in the subject of paying college athletes.

These members will retain their Main-Member status by making adequate sales regarding PCAA merchandise and by practicing fair and trustworthy policies toward their customers. The PCAA founder will make no profit from the sales and will garner only the publicity generated there from; therefore, wholesale prices will be kept as low as possible, with only the supplier company and the PCAA members making a profit.

Main Members will:

1) receive free PCAA literature to distribute, paying only shipping costs (or making their own copies from masters sent). All literature will be coded to identify the distributor so that he/she will be credited for responses received.

2) be allowed to purchase PCAA merchandise (T-shirts, caps, key chains, etc.) on a factory-direct, production-cost basis, sell it, keep all profits for themselves, and/or will be allowed to have a store on a print-on-demand site. The members will pay only what the manufacturer charges plus shipping, while I, myself, will not charge any profit whatsoever--thereby allowing the members to sell at cheaper prices and thus giving PCAA gear a tremendous marketing advantage. Main Members will also be able to offer Associate Members discount deals. The members' print-on-demand store will be maintained by the me, wherein I will be the only one allowed to load and edit products, set royalty rates, and, in many cases, log in (to protect the PCAA images uploaded to the store site).

3) be invited to join CentListInteractive.com as seller members--if they are in good standing with the public. Also, when/if CentList INTERACTIVE begins charging listing fees in the future, these Main Members in good standing will be given 100 free listings per year for life as long as they occupy Main-Member status. PLUS, they will receive mention on a page dedicated to past CentList accomplishments, with their main (INDEX) CentList page being linked from there.

4) have their name/handle or (if applicable) business/organization listed on the Contact Members page under the "MAIN MEMBERS" heading, with their choice of one photo (example: business/organization logo), up to a 100-word description of their business/organization, a link to their business/organization Web site if they have a site, and a link to their CentListInteractive.com SELLER INDEX page (click here for example) if they are CentList members.
