Member-Get-A-Member Program

Recruit New SAF Members and Create a Win-Win!

Tap into your network of colleagues and help SAF grow! By welcoming new, dynamic, and diverse members SAF becomes a stronger organization. Plus, you get the added benefit of a prize - a Win-Win for everyone!

The more new members you recruit each quarter, the more prizes you win. A new member is considered someone who has not held membership with SAF in the past and joins at any dues paying level of membership (Student, Transitional, Silver, Gold, or Platinum). Faculty representatives are not eligible to participate in the program. The sponsor (recruiter) must be a current member in good standing at the time of the new member application to receive prizes.

To ensure you receive credit, the new member must list your name in the "Sponsor" section of the online join (www.eforester.org/JoinNow ) or on a paper membership application. Sponsorship information received after the application has been submitted will not be eligible for credit towards the Member-Get-A-Member Program.

Prizes

Members can receive up to five prizes per quarter based on the number of new members they sponsor. For example: If you sponsor one new member you receive prize number one. If you sponsor two new members you receive prizes number one and two. If you sponsor three new members you receive prizes one, two, and three and so on. Prizes are capped at five per quarter and new prizes will be available every quarter. Sponsor prizes will be mailed 4-5 weeks after the end of each quarter.

The first quarter runs from January 1-March 31, the second from April 1-June 30, the third from July 1-September 30, and the fourth from October 1-December 31.

Prizes for the current quarter can be found here .

Recruitment Resource Center

Do you have a vast network of potential members you'd like to invite to be SAF members, but you're not sure how to approach them or what information to provide? Here are a few recruitment tips.

Identify the best prospects. Review your network of professional colleagues and identify who might benefit from SAF membership.
Know the benefits of membership. Review the membership pages to provide prospects with more information about SAF and membership benefits.
Give examples. Provide your colleagues with examples of how your SAF membership has benefited you both personally and professionally. A positive testimonial is a great recruitment tool.
Keep membership materials handy. Print out copies of the paper membership application to distribute at your next event and keep on hand at the office. If you would like additional recruitment materials, reach out to membership@safnet.org.
Invite your prospects to upcoming events.
Invite them to join online. Ask them to join easily online by going to www.eforester.org/JoinNow . Remind them to enter your information as their “Sponsor” during the join process.
Follow up. Check back in a few weeks to see if they have joined and ask if they have any questions.

Not sure if a colleague is a current SAF member? Check the SAF Member Directory before you begin a conversation about membership.

If you aren’t comfortable reaching out on your own, let SAF do the work for you. Email membership@safnet.org the contact information of your prospects and we will reach out on your behalf.
