Member-Get-a-Member Program


Member-get-a-member graphicYou know that we are stronger, smarter, and more successful together. Help create an even more vibrant Association—invite your peers, colleagues, and staff to join AALL—through the AALL Member-Get-a-Member (MGAM) Program. The program empowers our members to serve as ambassadors, incentivizing recruitment efforts and increasing member engagement.


For each member recruited receive:

  • A $15 Amazon gift card

All recruiters receive website recognition:


Participating is easy. After you establish a connection with a  potential member, simply ask them to enter your name in the “Referred By:” field on the online or printable member application.


  • A new member is defined as a person who has never been an AALL member or who has not had active membership within the past three years.
  • New members must identify referrers in the “Referred By” field on the member application.
  • The calendar year—January 1 through December 31—is used to determine the number of recruits per recruiter.
  • For each new member recruited during the calendar year (January 1 through December 31), recruiters will receive:
    • One $15 Amazon gift card.
  • The member with more than five members recruited during the calendar year (January 1 through December 31) will win a $250 Amazon gift card.
    • In the case of more than one member having recruited at least five members, the top recruiter winner will be chosen randomly.
  • There is no limit to the number of members that may be recruited by a member.


  • Tell a Story. Share a time when AALL membership was essential to your career. Avoid using jargon and acronyms.
  • Paint a Picture. Use the AALL Brochure as an information guide or a reference for messaging the benefits of AALL.
  • Make It a Game. Set a goal that you want to exceed. Better yet, “compete” against a few other members.
  • Focus on Benefits, Not Features. Explain why AALL membership helps you solve problems; ask prospective members what they need to do their best job.
  • Utilize AALLNET. What better way to illustrate all of the features of membership?
  • Get Social. Spread the word about AALL and the profession through your social media accounts.
  • Be Prepared. Always have an MGAM referral card handy.
  • Keep a Record. Make a list of the members you recruit.
