MMBA often receives requests from vendors to formally
endorse products and services. In return, MMBA members would be offered
financial discounts, added / special services etc.
MMBA welcomes and encourages vendor participation in
association activities for the purpose of developing "win-win"
relationships. Vendor participated includes MMBA Commercial Membership,
magazine advertising etc.
However, vendor involvement and any resulting actions are
offered with the mutual understanding that MMBA does not formally endorse
any product, service or company.
From time to time, MMBA representatives may suggest or
encourage members to consider a product, service or company - but it is
done without formal endorsement, sanction, ratification, recommendation or
seal of approval.
