   ship.” And he’s right! Discounted products and services are just one of the excellent benefits of being a
   member of the BPAA. Networking with your peers and industry leaders is priceless. Jason Johannes of Kan-
   sas says, “Attending International Bowl Expo or Bowling Summit is well worth my time and cost. It allows
   me to learn from and network with fellow proprietors, many of them who have become life-long friends.”
