Using the strength of its large membership,
PASR has negotiated attractive group rates on a
number of products and services. PASR endorses
services and products as a value added benefit
to its members and does not receive financial
compensation for our endorsement of any product
The philosophy that has always governed PASR’s endorsement of commercial products is: "Any financial benefits that might be derived from extending the PASR's name to endorse a commercial product must accrue to the individual members who elect to purchase the product, not to the organization.” In short, PASR does not solicit commissions or rebates from the companies it endorses and insists that such considerations be passed on to the individuals in the form of lower prices. We do not endorse to raise but to provide an additional service to our membership. Expenses related to marketing of the endorsed programs are typically paid by the companies and not by the association. So, PASR’s endorsements do not cost the association or its members. The following endorsements offer members the opportunity to save—just another way that your PASR membership works on your behalf.
