Take advantage of this special offer to recruit new Chapter members and earn a discount on your dues with the Membership growth initiative!

Now is the best time to recruit new members. Why? Because all new members you recruit can receive 25% off National dues for their first year and you will get a discount when you renew!

What do you need to do?  Invite new member prospects to attend the next chapter event and give them the 25% off national dues to encourage them to join on the spot.  Remember, membership recruitment is a year-round effort as we are on anniversary billing—membership is good for one year upon the date a member joins!

All GP-SFSP Members are encouraged to recruit as everyone benefits:

New members bring vitality and fresh perspectives to the chapter
New members have new circles of connections for member and sponsor prospects
You will build new relationships and expertise across financial services
