It's Simple—Here's How You Can Help
What if every ASIS member referred just one peer/colleague to join our diverse, global community of security professionals? As an engaged member of ASIS, no one has better first-hand knowledge about the value of ASIS membership. Reach out and share how ASIS has impacted your career so others can take advantage of the same opportunity, network, and resources. The challenge is on. Let’s grow ASIS together!
Explore the Recruitment Toolkit and take your first step to refer your peers and colleagues to join ASIS. New member prospects should visit www.asisonline.org/challenge. Keep tabs on the ASIS President's Challenge campaign on Twitter or Facebook — the 2021 campaign runs through 30 June.
The following resources and tools will help you in your mission to encourage your peers to join ASIS. However, it is your personal experience with us that will best convey the value of membership.
Tips to Get Started
Tell the story about why you're a member. Why did you join? What was the most compelling message about ASIS International that made you want to be a part of this community? If there was a person who influenced your decision to join, why did his/her opinion matter?
Provide examples. A positive testimonial is one of the strongest tools.
Describe how membership has helped you advance your career, either via tangible resources or relationships you've developed through ASIS International.
Focus on your recruit’s needs. Do they know ASIS International is the global leader for security professional development, education, certifications, and standards? Make sure they are aware of all the ways ASIS serves as the premier organization for security professionals across all industry sectors.
Let us help you close the deal! ASIS stands ready to help your recruitment efforts. Need a member services staffer to call or send more information to prospects? Simply email [email protected] and we’ll step in.
How are referrals/recruits tracked?
Please instruct your referrals to enter your name on the membership application. Tracking occurs through the “Who may we thank for referring you to ASIS International” field on all membership applications and the online application (see example).
Plus, remember to promote our new member incentive. As an exclusive offer, new members who join through a referral during our 2021 President's Challenge campaign will be able to select one of our Best of GSX+ packages.
