SAF Membership is even better with a friend!

The SAF Member-Get-A-Member Referral Program is a win-win for you and the friends you "bring" along. Every qualifying student or professional you refer that joins SAF brings you a step closer to a reward. Share the opportunities, benefits, and legacy of SAF. 

How the program works:

The referral program runs every year beginning June 1 until May 31 of the following year.

Entering the SAF Referral Competition is simple:
Simply have your referral enter your name and member Id number during the online join process.
If you use the online referral entry form below, your referral will automatically receive an email inviting them to join SAF.
If they use the membership paper application, make sure to have your referral include your name and member id on their application. This is the only way we can track your referrals on the paper application.

The Rewards: 

There will be two categories in which SAF members can refer:

  1. Students
  2. Professionals

 Members with the most referrals that join during the program year will choose between:


  1. A trip to an in-person Board of Directors meeting held in Washington, DC
  2. iPad


     1.  A trip to an in-person Board of Directors meeting held in Washington, DC
A Landmark Spatial Solutions Archer 4 Data Collector with a Juniper Systems Uinta GPS program 1-year subscription

SAF recognizes and awards referring members for submitting prospect leads. 

The Annual winners will be informed during the first week of June every year.
