2014 Origins Club Application

Summary

The Clubs & Organizations Program is our way of recognizing gaming groups around the country – and even the world – who are involved with playing and promoting social games. To support our loyal fans & game masters, we offer the Club Program again for the Origins Game Fair 2014.

What do I get for registering my Club or Group?

  1. Discounts on Origins Game Fair Badges:
    • Each registered club member will get a discount on each Badge
  2. The ability to “pool” benefits as a group.
  3. We encourage your group to run events at the show. We will allow the group to earn Game Master (GM) benefits as an organization as opposed to an individual (GM benefits can be downloaded above)
  4. Recognition for your group in the Origins onsite book
    • Each year we dedicate a page in the Origins onsite book to our loyal clubs and organizations.
    • Provide us with your club logo and make sure you have registered your events by March 1st and we will list your group!

Buying Your Club Badge

Club members are responsible for making sure their club is registered with Origins. GAMA MUST have received your club’s registration (this includes a current membership list). Once GAMA receives this we will issue a Coupon Code to your club which will discount the badge to the Club Rate. For club members wishing to use the online registration system choose the Club badge option. Club members must include your club name on the Business Name line of the online registration form.
