American Sociological Association: Member-Get-A-Member Campaign
ASA Launches 2014 Member-Get-A-Member Campaign
The American Sociological Association challenges ASA members to encourage their colleagues, students, and others interested in the discipline of sociology to join ASA for 2014. Each current member who sponsors a new member is eligible for special recognition, prizes, and discounts on member dues.
In our 2013 campaign, 62 ASA members brought at least one new member into the Association and received discounts on their 2014 dues. For this year's campaign, sponsors are eligible for discounted 2015 membership dues and our grand prize—a $250 Amazon.com gift certificate—as well as other member reward prizes.
Current members are our best source for new members who could benefit from all ASA has to offer.
In return, new members of ASA receive all the substantial benefits of membership, including access to the ASA online Job Bank; free resource submission to the TRAILS online database of teaching materials; deep discounts on ASA books, teaching resources, journals, and Annual Meeting registration; group rates on insurance, rental cars, magazines, and the JSTOR database; access to member-only online content; and much, much more.
You can print the special "Member-Get-A-Member" application form (pdf) and distribute it to potential new members. Or, you can encourage online application. (New members can indicate a sponsor when joining.)
No matter how you choose to participate, you are eligible to receive a reward for every new member you help bring into ASA.
Any current member who successfully sponsors a new member will be listed in a special article of recognition to be published in the September/October issue of Footnotes.
In addition, for every new non-student member you sponsor, you will receive a $10 discount off your 2015 membership dues. (Discount is limited to the amount of membership dues and may not be used for journal subscriptions or section memberships. Rewards are not applicable to new sponsored student members because student membership is highly subsidized by the ASA. However, current student members who sponsor a new full member are eligible for reward prizes.)
If you sponsor at least any one new member (including new student members) by July 31, 2014, you will be entered into the grand prize drawing.
The 2014 ASA Member-Get-A-Member campaign ends July 31. Join us as we make this year a record-breaking one!
ASA membership is on a calendar year basis. Offer limited to 2014 members and 2014 new memberships (renewed memberships are not eligible). Grand prize winner will be notified by August 15, 2014.
