(Tempe, AZ) — In 2002, 157 ISM members took part in the Member-Get-A-Member Campaign recruiting 389 new members. One individual member and three affiliates received honors for their outstanding contribution to ISM, its membership, and the profession:
Mark Kantor, from Alpharetta, GA, is the individual recruitment champion. Mark recruited 37 new members during the course of the campaign. As a result, ISM will be providing him a complimentary registration to this year's ISM Annual Conference in Nashville.
NAPM—Greater Lafayette won the affiliate portion with a 35 percent increase in membership.
ISM also has a drawing each year in which affiliates that raise their membership by 15 percent or more are eligible. In 2002, 14 affiliates qualified for the drawing:
NAPM—Twin Tiers, Inc. and NAPM—Central Kentucky, Inc. were the lucky drawing winners. All three affiliates win a free, two-day ISM seminar of their choice.
The 2003 campaign, "Dive In!" is already underway, giving members a chance to win ISM lapel pins, coffee mugs, valuable coupons, and more. Details can be found at www.ism.ws/MembersOnly/MGMMain.cfm.
