GCAMA Membership Benefits
1) Placement on our website. Each member business will be listed on our website with
a small business bio and photograph.

Those members that become sponsors will have their sponsor designation posed on the website as well. We will also be showcasing merchants weekly on our Facebook page.
2) Opportunity to promote your business in our Mountain Welcome Baskets. As buyers purchase homes on the Plateau, they receive a Welcome Letter from GCAMA introduc- ing our organization and welcoming them to our community. If the buyer brings the Welcome Letter to our office, they may redeem it for a Welcome Basket that we fill with coupons, flyers, promotional items and general information all supplied to us by our merchant members. This is a unique oppor- tunity to reach new customers in our area. We reach out with these Welcome Letters to Cashiers, Highlands, Sapphire, Glenville, Cullowhee and Lake Toxaway.
