Today you are being called upon to make a crucial contribution to a thriving future for our field.
This email represents our third request for your help in introducing tomorrow’s emerging leaders to the wonderful growth opportunities offered by AAIDD membership.
You know AAIDD’s journals, books, annual meeting and constant training opportunities help promising professionals to put down roots and reach, each day, for a brighter tomorrow for their field. You know others who need to know this. However...
They will Only Know it
if You take Time, Now, to Show it.
We can’t stress this enough, colleagues will be most open to joining AAIDD when you—a leader they trust to show them how to flourish— invite them.
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 and show your commitment to their healthy growth.
Your Most Promising Colleagues 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 Special Recognition
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.
They will grow best when you develop them with care.
