NPEA Member-Get-a-Member (MGM) – Ways to Reach Out

The NPEA Member-Get-a-Member (MGM) program is a membership referral initiative to encourage current members to refer potential new members to NPEA.

Follow these tips to get started today:

  • Start with those most familiar to you, and then expand to your larger professional network
  • Use our Sample Email to efficiently market NPEA
  • Invite a colleague to try one of our benefits, such as an NPEA webinar, the annual conference, or our job board
  • Spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn
    • “Interested in NPEA membership? Ask me about the benefits I receive as a member.”
  • When talking about NPEA with a potential member, try to learn more about the person and the organization or school they represent
    • Ask about their needs, as well as their individual and organizational/school goals
    • Share our How to Get the Most Out of Your Membership resources
    • Share your own story. Why is NPEA important to you and your organization?
    • Connect a potential recruit to an NPEA staff member (Karin or Carrie) at any time!
  • Use personal contact or personal messages, rather than bulk emails
  • Always thank people for their time – even if they do not become members, we are grateful for their consideration
