BY JENNIFER ROBNETT 2018 MEMBERSHIP CO-CHAIR INSURANCE RISK SERVICES Benefits Brush-Up MBAKS member benefits you should get to know better. "The annual refund our small company receives more than pays for the cost of (MBAKS) membership. And we can take advantage of other great benefits, as well!" —Shannon Dodge, Superior Slabjacking "I didn't get anything out of my membership." We hear this sometimes from members leaning toward not renewing their membership. We almost always learn these members have not engaged in the association. Think about those money booths on game shows where the bills are blown through the air. You have to at least grab the cash, right? If you are in the residential building industry, MBAKS membership will benefit you in some way, probably many. You just have to reach out and grab the benefits that best fit you. Here are just a few. GET VERSED ON QUICKBOOKS Here's the CliffsNotes summary on our newest benefit, QuickBooks accounting software, featuring expert guidance from partner ebs Associates. MBAKS members receive up to 50% off select QuickBooks products. ebs Associates also offers education, workshops, webinars, and ongoing courses to earn certifications that drive success. Learn more at GET A GRIP! While the workers' comp program is one of our biggest benefits, many don't know why. GRIP helps employers stay safe and save money by offering expert claims assistance, lowering L&I premiums, and helping MBAKS member employers earn bigger refunds— to the tune of $12.4 million combined in 2017. Participants also pay $11 million less in L&I premiums than the base rate (before refunds). It's no wonder more than 1,100 current MBAKS members are GRIP participants.
