Looking for a way to increase your sales and decrease your expenses?

Bartering may be the answer to your problems. Through the use of trade or bartering, you can fund many of your business and personal purchases without using cash. Instead you use trade revenue earned from selling your product or service to other member companies. Free up cash you may need for other purchases or use it to expand your business, and buy what you need for your company with trade revenue.


Metro Trading Association would like to let our members know that any cards that are expired  from May to Current, your cards are style good .  The expiration dates have been updated in our system.  These members have not been issued new cards with the new expiration date due to the fact that we are updating our software and will issuing new cards to the entire association upon completion of the upgrade.

We would like to THANK YOU for your patience with us during this upgrade.
