The Illinois Fidlar eByte: August 2017
Fidlar is pleased to offer Community Outreach services and programs that enhance the range of resources that the Recorder’s Office provides to constituents. Honor Rewards is a rewards program that allows veterans to sign-up to receive their Honor Rewards card, which grants the veteran discounts and benefits at local participating retailers, restaurants, and businesses. Veterans not only gain discounts from local businesses, but will benefit from having their DD-214s recorded by the local Recorder’s Office.
Honor Rewards allows local participating retailers, restaurants and other businesses to provide veterans with discounted benefits and services. Offering Honor Rewards throughout the community and the county will prompt individuals to record their important military documents, allowing them to be replaced if the original was ever lost. We are proud to share the experiences of our County Partners and to inform others of how they promote their services to constituents, this unique program can be utilized regardless of what software vendor is used by your office.
“Our first Honor Rewards Day was a success and we anticipate that the event will grow in the years to come. The event was held in the Recorder’s Office with kiosks setup for veterans & businesses to sign up. The entire Recorder’s staff were available to assist along with the Veteran Affair’s Office who provided refreshments and additional information. We reached out to the businesses that currently participate, chambers of commerce, local veteran organizations, municipalities and townships to promote the event through social media, email blasts and posting flyers. We had a steady flow of veterans and local businesses signing up throughout the day. New businesses continue to contact us regularly, enthusiastic to offer Honor Rewards. We continue to receive positive feedback and interest from the community about future events and the Honor Rewards program.” – Nikki Rowell, DuPage County Internet & Plat Department Supervisor
