The PLENTY Currency Cooperative

Business Membership Application

If you are a local business owner and would like to join the PLENTY organization, please submit the form below. While anyone can accept PLENTYs in commerce, PLENTY members enjoy unique benefits:

  • Ability to vote at membership meetings, and eligible to serve on Board of Trustees
  • Listing in the PLENTY On-Line Directory
  • “PLENTY Accepted Here” storefront decal
  • Cross-marketing opportunities through PLENTY email newsletters, web site and local events

The information you provide will be added to the PLENTY On-Line Directory unless you request otherwise.

For contact purposes, it is very important that each business provide a mailing address, an e-mail address, and a phone number so that we can provide you with materials such as window stickers and other promotional/educational materials and updates. However, this information does not have to appear on your directory listing unless you wish. To request something not be put on-line, simply enter the information followed by: [offline only] or another such marker.

In completing this form, please enter fields exactly as you want them to appear in your business listing on our directory page.
