Our tradition at DistribuTECH is to promote membership in the Users Group and we are at it this year as well!

  • New members joining during DistribuTECH will receive a $50 gift card.
  • If you or your company are not members, this is a WIN-WIN.  We offer lots of value to our members, but we need your support to continue our work.  Our 4,000+ hours of annual volunteer effort are at risk without industry support.
  • Existing members will receive a USB Power Bank with 4400 mAhr capacity (while supplies last) or shirt (sizes are limited).
