Chapters, Find Your Magic Number
Last month, IMBA chapters received info about "REDS" and "SHREDS" — two categories of enhanced dues sharing implemented to encourage chapter growth. (Read more about the chapter membership program and revenue split in this FAQ document.)
The basics are as follows: chapters that hit the Regular Enhanced Dues Share, or "REDS," target for membership growth see a 50-percent dues split on incremental membership dues, an increase from the the baseline 40-percent split during each financial quarter. Chapters that do even better with membership growth can qualify for the second category, Super High Reach Enhanced Dues Share, or "SHREDS," and earn a 50-percent revenue split of all membership dues received in a quarter.
