DPAA Continues Expansion with New Dues Structure

  • The Digital Place-based Advertising Association (DPAA) announced that elevate DIGITAL, enVu and Gloss Media have joined the association as members. The three additions bring the number of new members joining DPAA to 13 since the organization shifted to an advertising revenue-based dues structure in January 2012. Dues previously were assessed as a flat fee.
  • “We changed our dues structure in order to make the fees more equitable for our members and prospective members,” said Mike DiFranza, president of Captivate Network and DPAA chairman/acting president. “We felt this shift would make DPAA membership accessible to more companies, and I think the addition of 13 new members since the change would ratify the move as a success. I welcome elevate DIGITAL, enVu and Gloss Media to our ranks and look forward to them providing insights and expertise in helping us advance the digital place-based sector.”
