ABC is made great by our members, especially those who take their commitment as an active member seriously. Because we recognize that our members are our life line to growth, we feel that it is very important to reward them for their efforts and achievements. In 1966, ABC National established the Beam Club as a way to do just that.
To join the Beam Club, you must recruit five new ABC members. When you have recruited these members, you are automatically enrolled.
It's simple. The more companies you recruit, the more recognition you receive for being an ABC Beam Club member - recognition not only as a Pelican Chapter Beam Club member, but on the National level as well.
Every year, ABC chapters nominate outstanding Beam Club members. Seven of these winners receive recognition as Beam Club Member of the Year for their region. From these seven, ABC National will pick one to be recognized as ABC National Beam Club Member of the Year.
