Time is running out. You only have until May 1 to reach out and gather your own handful of bright colleagues into the luminous sphere of AAIDD membership.
With your help, a brilliant new collection of emerging leaders will make an appearance among us.
But They Will Need a Guiding Light to Lead Them
Chances are, your emerging colleagues will never find AAIDD without the guidance of an experienced senior professional like you to invite them in. No direct membership appeal from AAIDD—in print, on the web, or in-person—has ever had the impact of a member like you when you recommend joining as a smart move for a committed professional.
Your influence is needed, now, to keep AAIDD strong.
Your Promising Coworkers Trust Your Experience...
...and admire your accomplishments. You are part of a generation of trailblazers whose record of advancement will always inspire. Yet, looking ahead, we know that all we have accomplished must one day be entrusted to a new generation of leaders.
If we have prepared this next generation to value and respect all that came before, our proud legacy will endure and be enhanced by the elevated goals of those we’ve influenced.
Such Key Recruiting Efforts Deserve to be Recognized
To express our appreciation of your—and all of our members’— recruiting efforts, AAIDD will present our three most successful recruiters with their choice of gifts:
• One Full Year of AAIDD Membership at your current member level
• One Full Registration to the AAIDD 2008 Annual Meeting
• One Copy of Any Book You Wish from the AAIDD bookstore
It’s our way of honoring this association-wide effort and acknowledging all who contribute to it. So please, get started now in picking out the non-member colleagues you know who should belong to AAIDD, and encouraging them to join.
Your help will illuminate the future of AAIDD.
