Nexion agents now have the ability to join ASTA by paying
their dues on a monthly basis.
According to ASTA, Nexion has implemented a direct enroll
program, which enables agents to pay $17 each month toward ASTA’s $199 annual
membership for independent contractors.
Nexion’s agreement with ASTA — the first of its kind for a
host agency — is valid for the next two years.
In the past few years, several consortia have mandated or
subsidized ASTA membership, which Nexion president Jackie Friedman called “a
huge first step.”
“Now we have the opportunity to pioneer a program that works
in the host agency model with our agency members,” Friedman said. “This
complements their Nexion affiliation and professionalizes our network, giving
access to critical industry and government affairs updates.”
ASTA CEO Zane Kerby said that the Society is willing to work
with other host agencies on customized membership programs like Nexion’s.
