    Probably should mention that you are the PMA President as well and want to thank you for the hard work to make this happen.

    "Everyone" knows 15 minutes can save you...
    "Everyone" knows you're the Pres...

    But did you know the Pyramids were a mistake?

    Humor.

    Keep up the good work...

    Thanks Liz!

    Remember, we have members from Canada too! It's not just about "Affiliate Nexus" taxes, though we have spent a lot of time on that.

    We'd love to have the input and membership of anyone who thinks the Industry is important enough to have our own representation.

    Just in the last month alone, we've had ...

    1. Calls for ideas from anyone, on what they wanted to see from the PMA this coming year, as we shape our mission for 2014.
    2. Invitations to self-nominate for the 3 open spots coming up for the Board of Directors.
    3. Calls for fundraising to help with the ongoing legal and nexus issues.


    The leadership, and the elected Board of Directors, is very strong - a lot of whom you would recognize as ABW Members or contributors.

    The choice to participate, or even shape what we are working on - is yours.
    Thanks,

    Congratulation for everyone, and thanks for PMA and Brian for their effort, I hope to see PMA always taking action toward other states that try to enforce the Nexus law

    Despite this victory, I have only been invited to rejoin one affiliate program that booted me before the nexus law. Are merchants waiting to see if the state tries to take this to SCOTUS? In particular, I'd really like to rejoin Amazon before the holidays, but I just contacted them and they said they are "evaluating the opinion."

    We're getting the word out to programs that terminated in Illinois, and I expect you'll see more over time.

    With State government, you never know what they are going to do - but in the meantime, there is no obstacle to having Affiliates based in Illinois.
    Thanks,

    Good luck with Amazon. They have been "evaluating" things in Colorado for well over a year now.

    Thanks, Brian. Seems there's some confusion. I received an email from one merchant today letting me know that thanks to the change in Illinois law I was no longer welcome in their program. I sent them an email saying that it would seem the opposite should be true, but they never replied. I'll just hold tight.

    @Prosperent - Yikes. I guess I won't hold my breath waiting for Amazon. That's a real bummer.

    This was the response I received for being kicked out of the Chinese Laundry affiliate program:

    "Thanks for reaching out. The decision to remove Illinois publishers was a few months in the making and coincidentally coincided with the news that Illinois repealed the law. While the legal team at Chinese Laundry reviews the documentation that the law was repealed we do need to keep IL publishers out of the program temporarily. "
