Membership Campaign Extended!

NAHU is excited to announce that our current membership campaign is being extended through June 30! The campaign is overwhelmingly successful and we want to give our enthusiastic member recruiters extra time to earn a reward for their efforts. If you haven’t reached the four new members required to qualify for the campaign, you now have an extra two months to do so.

Recruit four new members from January 1 – June 30, 2013 and you get to choose to:

  • Have your membership dues waived for one year, or
  • Receive a $250 American Express gift card

Make sure your new recruits list you as the sponsor on their membership application and we will take care of the rest. Once four new members have joined, listing you as their sponsor, we will contact you for your reward choice. (Only one qualification per sponsor during contest period).

We would like to congratulate the members who have already qualified by offering the opportunity to win again! You can do this by recruiting four new members between May 1 – June 30, 2013. There will be no carryover member credit for members who have already qualified.
