To our PACENation friends:
PACENation is your organization, dedicated to bringing PACE to every community in America. We’re working with groups throughout the U.S. to bring PACE to more places and make sure property owners, manufacturers, contractors, governments and investors understand its unique advantages. And as our market grows, we’re developing best practices and standards to help ensure the long-term success of PACE.
PACE is at a turning point, and PACENation will need additional resources to meet the needs of our rapidly growing marketplace. To that end, we are pleased to launch a membership program that will enable deeper engagement between PACE stakeholders and our organization and help bolster financial support for our efforts.
PACENation is focused on four things:
- Expanding the availability of PACE financing
- Providing market information, resources, and data
- Developing industry policies, best practices and standards
- Providing networking and convening opportunities
We’re asking you and all PACENation members to make an annual contribution that makes sense for your company or organization. Below and on our website is a membership options list with levels and associated benefits. Higher contributions are linked to increased benefits and ways to participate in building PACENation with us, but contributing just $100 allows you to list your organization in our Member Directory, the online networking tool for PACE market participants. All members will receive a discount on registration for our annual Summit. Organizations that can give $5,000 or more per year will be able to appoint a representative to our newly established Leadership Council, a group that will be expected to give us advice, feedback, and play a direct role in developing PACENation Board adopted policies, best practices, and standards.
Many of you have been supporting us already, and for those who have contributed recently, your annual membership will take effect on December 1, 2016. To our members from the public and not-for-profit sectors – we appreciate your support but realize that it may not be possible for you to help fund us. If you can not, your membership is on the house, and we will be inviting many of you to join our Leadership Council.
Please take a minute, join, and make a contribution. You can use a credit card online, or send a check to me at the address below, payable to our 501(c)3 fiscal sponsor, the New Venture Fund. If you have any questions, just drop me an email and we’ll set up a time to talk. Welcome aboard!
My thanks and best wishes on behalf of our Board and the team at PACENation,
