There are many advantages to being an Allegacy member. Allegacy membership was recommended to me by a friend, and I will very likely “pay it forward”.

You can never over-state the importance of business support that truly makes an impact. Since the inception of FILMCOVE, Allegacy has been there every step of the way. I’m sure their positive impact will continue to be felt by us and others for many years to come. We are grateful.
