Recruitment Tips
  • Reach out to lapsed NACE members about rejoining.
  • Ask chapter members to refer their colleagues (members receive a $50 credit for each referral that joins when they list the referrer on the new member application).
  • Personalize the recruitment process based on prospect needs. Listen to their challenges and highlight member benefits that they will find most useful.
  • Follow-up is important! Email after a call to check in or just remind your prospect about the offer. Life gets busy and sometimes a simple reminder will get the ball rolling.

Refer a Member Credit
When members refer their colleagues and friends to NACE, they will receive a referral credit on their next renewal invoice when the new member lists them as the referrer on the membership application. When you refer 6 members in 2018, your renewal is on us.
