As an established leader in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities, you know exactly what it takes to stay on top of our vast and constantly changing professional landscape.
It takes the great vision and soaring enthusiasm that come with joining and participating in AAIDD.
It's Time to Share that Valuable Experience
with Your Junior Colleagues...
...and show them the promise on tomorrow’s horizon. 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.
Your Promising Colleagues will Probably Never Join AAIDD...
...unless you, a more senior professional invites 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.
You must lead the way, now, to keep AAIDD strong.
AAIDD Will Gratefully Recognize
Those Who Help to Lift Others
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 boldly inspiring non-member colleagues to join AAIDD.
If you don’t do this, it won’t get done.
