Each time you recruit a new member, your name is entered into a drawing for the grand prize. In addition, you’ll receive a gift for your first recruit!

And if you recruit 10 or more new members, you win free registration to ESA's co-located Annual Meeting, Synergy in Science 2015 in Minneapolis, Minnesota!

The more new members you recruit, the more chances you have to win the grand prize and other prizes!  Grand prize is your choice of an iPad mini or $300 AMEX gift card.

NEW:  The Branch that brings in the greatest percentage growth of new members (not number of new members), wins a special prize for their Annual Branch Meeting, a free $500 coffee break.

It's an easy 3-step process:

1.  You recruit a new member* (helpful materials can be found above)

2.  They join ESA and enter your name and email address on the form (please be sure you have them use the email address you have on file with ESA)

3.  You receive a thank you letter with your multi-port USB hub for your first referal and a chance to win the grand prize. 

4.  When you recruit 10 new members, you receive complimentary registration to ESA's 2015 co-located Annual Meeting, Synergy in Science.


Consider sponsoring a new member through ESA’s Presidents Circle Membership and get credit for that new member. Visit www.entsoc.org/PresidentsCircle for information.
