Program Rules & Regulations
Only NASS members in good standing can participate in this program as a referrer.
Program is not valid for new In-training or International Tier 2 memberships.
Program is not valid for renewals or reinstatements (the individual being referred must be a new member and complete the full application process). If an existing member creates a new membership through the program, the 20% discount will be voided and due from that member and the referring member will not receive credit for the referral.
20% discount for new member is off of current membership rates (prorated quarterly) and discount is not applicable to $50 application fee.
20% discount for the existing member is off of next year of unpaid membership dues; refunds will not be issued on prior payments or pending payments for current membership year (ex. If a new member is referred during the 2020 membership-year, 20% discount for the current member will be applied to 2021 dues, if not already paid).
There is no limit to the number of referrals that a member can earn.
Members must comply with all up-to-date “SPAM” laws. For example, emails related to the program must be created and distributed in a personal manner (bulk email distribution is prohibited). Any distribution of a referral link that could constitute unsolicited commercial email or “spam” under any applicable law or regulation is expressly prohibited and will be grounds for immediate disqualification from the program.
NASS asks that you do not post your referral link in any public space. If NASS identifies a referral link posted publicly, the link will be invalidated and a new link will be added to the member’s contact. More than one public post may disqualify a member from participating in the program.
Program is valid on paid memberships and the individual applying for membership must complete the full application process (apply online, send their CV, pay applicable dues and be accepted to membership by NASS) to be eligible.
To receive credit for a referral, the individual applying for membership must use the personalized referral link for the referring member; if this link is not used, no credit will be received. Referral links will not be added to existing applications; in the event that an individual with an existing application applies using a member’s referral link, the 20% discount will be voided and due from that member and the referring member will not receive credit for the referral.
If an individual referred to the program is not elected to membership, no credit will be received.
If a member who has referred a colleague resigns their membership prior to receiving their discount, no cash equivalent will be issued.
Referral awards are non-transferrable and cannot be applied to other items (meeting registration fees, products, etc).
As Referrers, members are responsible for any and all tax liability resulting from referral rewards received as part of the program.
NASS reserves the right to cancel the program or to change the terms, rules and/or rewards of the program at any time and in its sole discretion.
