CAA is pleased like to announce a new Referring Member field on our membership form. When you refer a friend or colleague to join CAA you can win small prize such as a $15 gift card to Starbucks. Prizes will be given out to the first 3 members who are named as referring members at the CAA Members Meeting on March 30. Can't make it to the Members Meeting? Don't worry, we will work with you to make sure you get your reward!
When new members sign up, they can simply add your name to the Referring Member field. This field is completely private and so it will not show up on the new member's public profile. Please note, at this time this initiative only applies to new members who join online, not those who send in the new member registration in the mail.
Not sure who to refer? CAA is not strictly for archivists! Consider colleagues who may work with archives in some way but do not consider themselves archivists: students, records managers, rights and images staff, librarians, historians, or others who simply have an interest in archives and want to learn more. CAA's workshops and behind the scenes tours offer insight into the Chicago archives world which may be of interest to a broader audience. Just don't forget to ask them to put you down as their referring member!
