MEMBER GET A MEMBER CAMPAIGN
80 years is an impressive milestone for any organization. We have a lot to celebrate as Information Science continues to increase its relevance to the world. It is always important to acknowledge where we came from and what has been accomplished. However, it is also vital that we look to ensuring that ASIS&T is around for another 8 decades. This can only be guaranteed with a strong membership base.
An influx of new members provides stability to the organization. New members bring new ideas, fill volunteering gaps and new networking possibilities. Membership dues is a predominant source of revenue for ASIS&T. An association is only as strong as its membership and over the last several years, ASIS&T membership has been declining. It is imperative that we reverse this trend. The more members we have, the better our bargaining edge, the more resources we have to develop new programs and benefits, and the greater the pool of volunteers to help manage ASIS&T.
ASIS&T has no better ambassadors than our members. The most powerful recruitment tool we have is you, because most persuasive to a prospective member is your personal testimony – why you are a member.
Please join the campaign and bring in your colleagues and friends so that ASIS&T can thrive for another 80 years!
