Membership Magnet Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs)
How does the program work?
The online membership form has a “Referred By” field on it. Eligible new members must complete the form and include the name/contact of the Host Member in the referral field.
Once the completed application is received, SOCAP staff will check to ensure that the Host Member’s dues is current and the new member meets the program qualifications.
How are points accrued?
The program will award points to current SOCAP members (called Host Members) who successfully recruits a new member in two categories:
- Regular Individual Members = 5 points/member
- Corporate Members = 15 points/corporate member (regardless of level—Silver, Gold, Platinum, BP)
How long will the Member Magnet Campaign run?
SOCAP’s Membership Magnet Program will run through September 30, 2017. In order for you to be credited for points, “new members” you recruit must have submitted their completed online applications with your name in the “Referred By” field by midnight on September 30, 2017.
How do I win?
SOCAP will award grand prizes to the Top 3 winners who reached more than 50 points (in any combination of new Individual and/or Corporate member).
Members who do not reach 50 Points will be entered into a raffle to win a complimentary conference registration or suite update at the 2017 Annual Conference. For every “new member” a Host Member recruits, they will earn a ticket for each point they earned.
Am I eligible to participate in the program?
To participate in the Member Magnet Program, you must be current with your 2017 SOCAP membership.
What constitutes a “new member?”
A “new member” is defined as any individual or any company that was not a member of SOCAP in the 2016 calendar year, completes a membership application in 2017 and pays the new member fees.
How do I find out if I’ve won?
SOCAP will provide regular status updates on which members are leading in points in CRM magazine, on the website, and through social media posts. Winners will be announced at the 2017 Annual Conference in October.
Do the points I accrue impact my SOCAP Chapter in any way?
- If you recruit a “new member” in your area who decides to also join your Chapter, then yes. Your Chapter will benefit by increased growth.
- If you recruit a “new member” outside your area, then no.
Chapters have their own separate awards programs through which they receive recognition. This program is completely separate from that.
Who do I contact with any questions about the processing or status of an application?
