SHRM's Member-Get-A-Member Campaign


 Get Rewarded for Your Referrals


The SHRM Member-Get-a-Member Campaign rewards YOU for encouraging other HR professionals to join SHRM between 8/1 - 8/31/2013

Here's how it works:

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. Or, you can customize this e-mail draft that we have started for you.

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.


  • Only active members in good standing can participate in the Member-Get-a-Member program.
  • Program is valid for professional membership categories only. New student members do not qualify.
  • Program is not valid for current renewals, although memberships that have not been active for at least 12 months since their last expiration date are valid for a referral prize.
  • To receive credit for a recruit/referral, the new member must include the referring member's name and e-mail.If SHRM cannot verify the identity of the referring member, no prize will be awarded for that application.
  • Program valid for memberships processed and activated (not just mailed) by August 31, 2013.
  • SHRM staff are not eligible for rewards.
  • Members through SHRM corporate clients are NOT eligible to recommend someone at their own organization (though they can recommend an HR person at another company).
  • Program rules and incentives are subject to change by SHRM. SHRM reserves the exclusive right to interpret these rules.

Dear <fill in your friend’s name>,

Have you considered joining SHRM, the world's largest professional HR association?  I'm a member and really value all the member benefits, including hundreds of online resources, direct access to trusted advisors and a widespread and diverse group of HR professionals to network with.

Here are a few highlights of membership that I think you could utilize:

HR Resources like free webcasts, videos, articles, toolkits, how-to-guides, metrics calculators, daily HR news, monthly HR Magazine, research and more. For any specific challenge, you can call or e-mail our HR Knowledge Advisors for personal assistance, at NO additional cost.

SHRM is great for networking and you can use the SHRM Connect online network, HR Talk bulletin board, Member Directory and face-to-face seminars and conferences to connect with other HR professionals and get instant feedback from a global community of 250,000 members.

You can also get discounted rates on all SHRM conferences, seminars, bookstore items, certification preparation materials and the certification exam, e-learning courses, and other services through SHRM's member affinity program.

Here is the application to join:

I look forward to you joining me in the SHRM community!

Thank You,
