USCIB’s membership is growing! This year, more than ever, we owe our success to USCIB’s volunteer leadership – our current members – who have worked hard to open doors and tell their peers about the benefits of a USCIB membership. Our 2012 membership campaign, led by USCIB’s Executive Committee and many key members, has resulted in the addition of 21 new members in the first half of 2012 – the most new members in the first six months of any year since 2005.
While that’s great news, now is not the time to sit back. Competition for membership dollars is at an all-time high, and we need your help to tell the USCIB story to as many prospects as we can.
If you have a contact at a company that could benefit from USCIB membership, here are three simple steps you can take to get the ball rolling:
- E-mail or call with testimonial support on the value USCIB brings to your organization.
- Invite them to join you at a committee meeting as an observer to see how the process works first-hand.
- Offer them a one-year complimentary subscription to International Business.
Then be sure to let us know. When you reach out, you’ll be helping to enrich your own membership at USCIB by adding more voices to support action on issues that are important to your company. For more information on how you can get involved, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Member Services Director Alison Hoiem at email@example.com. You’ll be glad you did.
