Communities Recruitment Race: Each Chapter and SIG member is asked to recruit 2015 renewing or new members starting 18 March to 1 June. Members who join or renew will receive a free 2015 membership in the referring Chapter or SIG.
How it works: When recruiting a member, please ask them not to sign up or pay for the Chapter or SIG, but to include the name of the Chapter or SIG who referred them on the online application. The referral fields can be found under the Membership tab of the online application. STC will be responsible for signing the member up for that particular Chapter or SIG free of charge. The community must be listed online to receive credit.
The Chapter or SIG with the highest percentage of new or renewing members are entered to win prizes to be raffled to your members at the end of the campaign.
We strongly encourage communities to raffle off these prizes for their members. Be sure to remind new and renewing members to list your community in the referral field! You will not receive credit otherwise.
Good luck! Let’s see who crosses the finish line first! Don’t forget, this campaign runs until Monday, 1 June.
Remember…. Classic membership is currently discounted 10% to $202.50. Refer potential new members to this page on STC website: Join STC . By the way, if you know someone who lives in an area that doesn’t have a chapter, encourage them to become a remote member of your chapter!
And as an incentive for new and renewing members……FREE WEBINAR ONLY FOR MEMBERS OF A CHAPTER OR SIG:
