Member-Get-A-Member Campaign

The York SHRM Member-Get-A-Member Campaign rewards YOU for encouraging other HR professionals to join York SHRM now through June 30, 2019. Here’s how it works:

YOUR REWARDS — Receive a $20 gift card* for each new member recruited. Even if you bring in just one new member, you get a $20 gift card.

 HOW TO REFER — Send an email to colleagues (example below) or forward the Online Application to  NEW members.  

HOW WE TRACK: If your referrals apply for membership, they will need to answer “Another York SHRM Member” when asked if they were referred to York SHRM by a current member on their membership application and fill in the current member’s name. Once they are approved for membership and pay their membership dues for 2019, you will get your reward.  It’s that easy.
