When we come together as a community working together to advance education research, our profession has strength and impact. As an IARSA member, you are an important part of a thriving community of researchers who are working together to benefit society and improve lives. In support of this mission, we invite you to participate in the IARSA Membership Referral Program.
When we work together as one, we are stronger together. When you share the value of IARSA with your friends and colleagues you are helping to make our community of education research stronger and more vibrant. When you combine your network with IARSA’s, you are making a positive contribution to advancing education research and the future of research worldwide.
Refer a colleague so we can strengthen our ability to work together in advancing the education research and the profession.
Share. Let your colleagues know how you advance your career with information from IARSA’s publications and newsletters, by gaining leadership skills and giving back through volunteer opportunities, and being able to connect and collaborate with education research professionals from around the world... and that they can do the same thing!
Refer. Have them include you as the referring member on their application when they join IFT and you will be entered to win a free annual membership.
We have tools and resources you can use when you talk about IARSA, including reasons people join IARSA and templated messages you can send to share the benefits of IARSA membership.
Be familiar with the many IARSA membership types and benefits. IARSA is the catalyst for international researchers and scholars - from the latest food trend information, discounts on educational programming, to opportunities for professional interaction... IARSA is your corporation, and who better to explain the benefits than you, one of our dedicated members.
Show your enthusiasm by sharing first-hand accounts of how your membership in IARSA has been a rewarding experience. Prospective members will be much more likely to join if they can relate to how you have benefited from membership.
Show prospective members the value of IARSA membership by sending them to www.iarsa.info. The website contains valuable information about IARSA and our member benefits.
Following up with prospective members is just as important as your initial contact. Call them, email them, send a letter, or drop by to see if they have joined and answer questions they may have. Sample email and letter messages are provided below.
Send a note or email thanking the prospective member for considering membership in IARSA. The more contact they have with you, a current IARSA member, the more likely they will be to join and stay involved!
