PGMS “Member-Get-A-Member” Campaign

Would you enjoy winning prizes such as an all-expense paid trip to the 2016 PGMS School of Grounds Management and GIE+EXPO (Louisville, Oct. 19-22) or the PGMS 2016 Summer Education Conference in San Antonio, Tx. (June 6-7)? Perhaps you would like a complimentary PGMS membership for 2017?

Over the last few years PGMS has increased membership as well as the number of dynamic industry vendors who are supporting us as Elite Partners in Professionalism.

One of the ways in which we accomplished this was through the help of many of YOU who participated in our past “Member-Get-A-Member” Campaigns. So, let’s keep the momentum going, let’s have fun, and do it again!

By doing so, you could win:

  • EB600RT Backpack Blower (sponsored by Shindaiwa)
  • $100 bill (11 to be awarded)
  • All-expense paid trip to the 2016 PGMS School of Grounds Management and GIE+EXPO (airfare, 3 nights hotel and tuition)
  • All-expense paid trip to the PGMS 2016 Summer Education Conference (airfare, 2 nights hotel and tuition)
  • Complimentary PGMS membership for 2017

The deadline to recruit new members is Tuesday, March 31, 2016.

It’s easy to participate. Just sponsor a new active member. For every member you sponsor, your name goes into the contest. The more new members you sponsor, the more often you have a chance to win. To make sure we give you credit when you recruit a new member(s), simply ask the member you recruit to download the application form, print it, write your name on the form as his/her sponsor and fax, scan and email or mail it to PGMS.

As an incentive to help attract new members, PGMS will lower first year dues for every new member you recruit to only $100. (Note: this special 1st year membership fee is only for members recruited by another PGMS member and it does not include any branch dues.)

Help grow your association by recruiting just one new member – remember, the more new members you recruit, the more often you have a chance of winning one of our great prizes. The more members we have, the more we can grow PGMS and our profession!
