Member-Get-A-Member Campaign

When CESSE grows, you grow!

There is strength in numbers, and when more STEM society professionals come together, our association becomes greater. We invite you to encourage your peers to join CESSE and help create a stronger community through our Member-Get-a-Member Program.
  • For each member you recruit, you will earn one entry into a drawing to win $250. The more members you recruit, the better your chances!
  • As a recruiter, you will receive recognition through social media, email, and CESSE Community.

There’s no better way to grow our association than to have our members share their experiences. Learn how you can get involved and enhance your network.

Steps to Refer a New CESSE Member

It’s easy to get started! When your recruit is ready to join, have them complete the online membership application and ask them to enter your name in the “Referred By:” field.  


Let us help you win $250!

We’ll make it easier for you to recruit new members to CESSE and increase your chances to win $250. Just follow these simple steps and watch your referrals come in:

  1. Send us a picture of yourself or a professional headshot (your LinkedIn profile image will work nicely)
  2. Briefly share why you joined CESSE or a valuable takeaway from your membership experience.
  3. We’ll create a social media post complete with an image graphic and caption that you can then share with your network.

Tips on Recruiting New Members

  • Paint a Picture. Share a time when CESSE helped you in your career. 
  • Make it a Competition. See if you can get more recruits than your fellow CESSE members.
  • Focus on the Value. Explain why CESSE membership helps you solve problems and ask your colleagues what they need to perform well at their job.
  • Share Some Free Benefits. Give your colleagues a taste of CESSE's member benefits. Share some free webinars and DEI resources with them.
  • Get Social. Spread the word about CESSE through your social media accounts.
