Support Your Lab Members Through the

Member-Get-A-Member Campaign

Support and collaborate with your trainees and colleagues at every level, whether at home or in the lab. Help them take advantage of the many expanded ASCB digital resources, which now include a member-exclusive online community, Mentor Match program, CV review, a job board, and a variety of live and on-demand professional development webinars and videos.

Sign them up by August 31 and in return both you and they will enjoy special “thank-you” rewards. All new members will receive a $10 Amazon gift card, and you will receive rewards based on the number of new members you recruit:

  • $10 Amazon gift card for each member recruited;
  • 1-year complimentary ASCB membership for recruiting 5 or more members; and
  • Complimentary registration to Cell Bio Virtual 2020, an Online ASCB|EMBO Meeting, for recruiting 10 or more members.

Be sure your referrals provide us with your name when completing the online application.
