IT ONLY TAKES ONE
Statistics show that peer-to-peer recruiting is the number one way to grow an association but most importantly, the best way to retain members. It starts with the personal relationship between colleagues and extends to the professional relationship within the society. We truly appreciate your membership and are confident you know at least one colleague who is not a member. Please take the time to speak to your colleagues today. Explain to him/her why your membership is important and even direct them to the website for any additional information, www.lsms.org. At this time, the support of all physicians in Louisiana is crucial. This legislative session is packed with an unprecedented number of scope of practice bills. Even though we have a solid reputation as a strong, unified voice with members of the legislature, we must maintain our ongoing efforts and every member counts!
"It only takes one" Campaign: Starting April 1, we are asking that every member recruit one Active* non-member to join the LSMS and a local parish medical society. Each month we will randomly select one winner to receive a predetermined prize.
For any questions or marketing materials, please contact Terri Watson, Director of Member Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
