Earn Cash for Your Chapter by Promoting New National Memberships

For chapters of the National School Public Relations Association, national membership has its benefits. New this year, NSPRA is inviting all chapters to enroll in a cash-back program that will reward them $50 for each current chapter member converted into a new NSPRA membership by May 2020.

Want to earn money from NSPRA to support your local chapter programs?

Chapter officers, enroll your chapter now in this new cash-back program by following these steps:

  1. Complete the participation letter of agreement (fillable PDF) and return it via email to tjones@nspra.org by Thursday, Oct. 31.
  2. Submit a copy of your complete chapter membership roster to tjones@nspra.org by Thursday, Oct. 31. Provide the roster as a spreadsheet that includes each current chapter member’s name, title, employer/organization, mailing address, city, state, postal code and email address. Microsoft Excel spreadsheets are preferred, but Google Sheets are also welcome. The roster will be used by NSPRA to create a baseline count of chapter members who are NSPRA members in October 2019.
  3. Distribute two emails marketing NSPRA membership to your current chapter members, the first by Friday, Nov. 15, 2019, and the second by Tuesday, March 31, 2020. NSPRA is providing sample marketing email content that can be adapted as necessary for the chapter’s use. Include tjones@nspra.org in the distribution list for the marketing emails or forward a copy to the same email address after the fact for verification.

Wondering how the program works?

If a chapter enrolls in the 2019-20 cash-back program for NSPRA chapters, it will earn $50 for each current chapter member as of Oct. 31, 2019, who becomes a new NSPRA member between then and Sunday, May 31, 2020.

For the final cash-back calculation, NSPRA will use the chapter membership roster submitted in October to determine if any chapter members became new NSPRA members between then and May 2020.

The cash-back reward is for new national memberships only among current chapter members as of October 2019. Renewals of NSPRA memberships among current and past national members will not count towards a chapter’s cash-back reward.

The results of the program and reward amounts will be announced to participating chapters in June 2020.
