  • Get More of Your Team Involved and Save Over $1,000 With GEAPS memberships!

    GEAPS has an exciting new way to get your co-workers involved in the organization – Company and Facility memberships. If your plant has more than three employees, you’ll start saving money on membership today!

    The new model was created by the Membership Committee as part of a strategic plan to increase membership and better serve our members. The larger our member base grows, the more access we have to knowledge and solutions.  Membership Committee Chair Jacob Elder, Proximity Malt, Mid-Atlantic Chapter, said the committee was focused on making it easier to bring new employees into the association. “As a committee, we discussed a number of different ways to increase membership,” Elder said. “The conversation kept coming back to new employees. They have the most to gain from GEAPS membership.

    This new model makes it easier for companies to invest in their teams with lower price points for groups of members.” If you are the only member at your facility, nothing changes for you. You can renew for the individual rate and keep taking advantage of our network and training. With two members at your plant, how valuable would it be to bring a new employee into GEAPS? They can learn a lot and make valuable connections. If a problem comes up at your plant, they will have the tools to find a solution. Whether you are on an individual, company or facility membership you still get access to all the benefits of GEAPS. We hope you will encourage more of your team to get involved as well!
