August: SHRM Member Get-A-Member

It’s no secret that I support SHRM and saw today that SHRM is running the Member Get-A-Member promotion for the month of August.  The following information is mostly taken from the SHRM website but is done so in hopes that it might reach a person working in Human Resources who has never heard of the Society for Human Resource Management.


Member Get-A-Member


If you are a national SHRM member you can be rewarded for referring a new member during the month of August.

Here’s how it works (from the SHRM Website):

YOUR REWARDS — Receive a $20 gift card* for each of the first five new members recruited. ($100 maximum reward per referrer.) Even if you bring in just one new member, you get a $20 gift card.

HOW TO REFER — Share the benefits of SHRM and encourage your friends/colleagues to join SHRM via the Online Application for NEW members.

HOW WE TRACK — If your referrals apply for membership, they will need to answer “YES” when asked if they were referred to SHRM by a current member on their membership application confirmation page, and fill out the information requested. If they join, you get rewarded. It’s that easy.
