Trip Up for Grabs
AAPG's Membership Enhancement and Development Drive
continues to gain momentum as Active and Associate applications
are coming in from all AAPG Sections and Regions.
As of press time, new applications have been received
from every Section and Region.
The Asia/Pacific Region is out in front having developed
the most active and associate memberships thus far. The Gulf Coast
section leads the Sectional race, with Rocky Mountain section close
Remember, the top recruiter in each Section and Region
will be awarded $250 AAPG dollars. Of course, all members who recruit
get "stuff," including a desk flag for everyone who recruits one
new member and special recognition lapel pins for those who recruit
three or more.
The top overall recruiter will receive a travel voucher,
four nights lodging and registration fees for the 2003 AAPG international
meeting in Barcelona, Spain.
A secondary goal of the Membership Drive is to communicate
the benefits of AAPG membership. There are many benefits to belonging
to AAPG and these items have been highlighted in the Membership
Value Pyramid. The Pyramid (focus of Rick Fritz's column in the
November EXPLORER) makes it easy to discuss with potential AAPG
members the value of AAPG to them and the professional community.
So when you're talking to new recruits for AAPG,
and you're not quite certain as how best to communicate to them
the many benefits of AAPG membership, consider the Pyramid. It contains
all the important building blocks, which will make the recruit ask
you, how can I join?
It might be the easiest way in which you have ever
won a prize.
