When you become a FFREIA member, you learn how to MAXIMIZE profits and minimize expenses.

Here is a brief overview of some of our membership benefits:

President Leon Griggs speaks to a FFREIA member. There are plenty of networking opportunities at every General Meeting.

Monthly Networking

  • Each member has access to other members via networking and interaction at our monthly
  • Members give fellow members referrals, which can save you time, money, and worry.
  • Plus members can join or form focused “Member Forums” sub-groups: designed to connect members who are at the same level of experience, our small sub-group forums are a powerful way to have your questions answered, and to share expert insider tips and strategies with one another.


  • Members receive discounts from our vendor members, as well as from national vendors that provide goods and services locally.
  • Speakers often offer discounts on books, software, and their sponsored events including seminars.
  • We also give away valuable books and products during our monthly meetings through raffles and special drawings.

  • Members can avoid making potentially costly mistakes by consulting with other members who are experts in their
    fields. Speakers give invaluable advice, but considerable helpful advice is provided free.
  • We provide and promote a buddy system – members teaming up with members to do deals, swap experience, and learn.
  • Some members are available privately for one-on-one consultation for a fee, or for a percent of sales basis. But however it’s done, membership helps you network and learn at monthly meetings and sub-group forums that range from beginner sessions to expert and specialist talks and presentations.
  • It’s a great way to “turbo-charge” your thinking and your business!
