Become a Merchant Member

What are Merchant Members?

Merchant Members are commercial enterprises that agree to give a 10% discount on kites and related merchandise to AKA members in good standing. The discount applies to the regular price of such merchandise and not necessarily to the “list” price. The discount does not necessarily apply to sale merchandise.

There are currently over 150 AKA Merchant Members who operate retail and mail-order kite businesses.
