Sisterhood Exchange Program

The Sisterhood Exchange Program (SEP) is a program by which Sisters can receive discounts on products or services from participating members. Its purpose is to encourage women to matronize Sisters who offer products and services through their businesses or hobbies. This program provides a marketplace where Sisters can help another Sister’s business by purchasing from them or even bartering an exchange of goods or services. All current SOA members can receive a 10% to 30% discount on orders placed with SEP Providers. It’s very simple to use the program. Use the following SEP Providers list. Visit the websites listed to place your order or you can also email the Sister directly. Be sure to include in your order the SEP number that was assigned to you when you joined the SOA. Th is is the only way to receive a discount as it is the surest proof that you are a SOA Member. Some providers also offer extra discounts or have exceptions to their discounts, so it is a good idea to contact the SEP Provider before placing your order.

Do you have a business or hobby that your Sisters could matronize? We’d love to have you as a member of the SEP. It could be just about anything and doesn’t necessarily have to be metaphysical. (We all have mundane lives too!) Perhaps you are a Real Estate agent who would give a discount on fees, or a florist who’d offer a discount on bouquets. Maybe you are a hairstylist who will give a discount to Sisters in your area, or an accountant who can give a special rate on processing financial forms. If you have a product or service, we’d like to see you listed in our directory. Contact Debbie, the SEP Coordinator, for more information and guidelines at  avalonswillow@hotmail.com

*Any woman who is a member of the SOA is eligible to participate in the Programs.
