The #1 way that new online applicants for NASS membership said that they learned about the Society was through colleague referral. You are the Society's greatest source for future growth and success. For that reason, NASS would like to reward you when you recruit new members to the Society. For each new member you recruit this year, you will receive a $25 NASS Store credit and be entered into a drawing for a complimentary 2019 membership!


As a member, you are the Society’s greatest resource for recruiting new members. Your participation in the Member-Get-A-Member program is essential to strengthening the Society.


By simply reaching out to your network of professional colleagues and encouraging them to become a member, you pass along the many benefits of membership.


For each member you recruit, you will receive a $25 NASS Store credit and be entered into a drawing to receive a complimentary 2019 membership!

How to Participate

For every new or reinstated* non-in-training member that you recruit for the 2018 membership-year (until September 15, 2018), you will receive a $25 NASS Store credit and be entered into a drawing for a free 2019 membership! To get involved in this program:

  • Start encouraging your colleagues to become a NASS member, tell them about the benefits of membership and give them examples on how your membership has helped you in your career.

  • If they’re interested in joining direct them to apply through this application link. When they apply online, be sure to tell them to select under reason for applying Colleague Recommendation and provide your name. Then at the shopping cart enter in promo code MGM18 to waive the applicant’s $50 application fee.

  • When they complete their application by submitting their CV or résumé and paying any applicable dues, your referral will be validated; and in late September 2018, your NASS Store credit will be issued and you will be entered into the drawing for a free 2019 membership.

*A reinstated member is defined as an individual who has been inactive for the last 3 membership-years.
