Joining the HIA includes numerous benefits:
* Full Business and Farming members ONLY benefit
1. Is your Business Newsworthy? Members receive monthly newsletters. Farming and Business members may submit announcements, news and press releases to our Member Services Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each month, the collection of Member News is added to the HIA’s website for additional exposure.
2. Social media content sharing with HIA’s social networks. Farming and Business members may submit their original posts to be re-shared by HIA’s social media administrators. HIA reserves the right to re-share suggested member content. A company’s content submission should include the URL associated with the company’s original post from one of the following platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. Members must be logged in to the HIA website to see the “HIA Member Social Media Request” feature on the “Members Only Content” page. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Member Services Coordinator.

As a Farming or Business member, you too can submit a discount code or opportunity to market to the HIA’s vast and ever-growing network.
