Recruiting is Easy!
Recruiting a member is easy – when you connect with fellow professionals and students at meetings, online, on the job, or while networking at industry events, simply tell your colleagues how you benefit from your membership with APSA and suggest that they visit www.apsanet.org to learn more about the value of membership. To make it easy for you, we have also created some printable promotional material to help you discuss APSA member benefits.
When they join, they must put your name as the person that “referred” them to join. We will keep track of your recruitment activity for you. It’s that simple.
We have also included a printable version of our membership form for those who wish to mail-in or fax the completed form.
