Tips for Effective Recruitment

  • Add this (or some variation) and one or more of the logos below to your email signature and social media profiles: Proud AWRA member. Ask me how you can be too, for half price!
  • Identify prospective members. Identify individuals in your professional network who could benefit from AWRA membership. When you are networking and meeting new individuals, consider asking them if they are a member of AWRA. Ask about their professional development needs and what types of information or resources would be useful to them. Highlight the AWRA resources that address expressed needs.
  • Familiarize yourself with the benefits of AWRA membership. Visit the Benefits of Membership page on (The comparison chart at the bottom of the page is particularly helpful.) Keep membership materials with you. Download campaign recruitment materials below.
  • Share your testimonial about AWRA. Remember why you joined and how your membership experience with AWRA has benefitted your career. You may have joined because you had an unforgettable experience at a meeting or conference. Perhaps you joined because you read the Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA) or Water Resources IMPACT and gained some valuable information that you were able to use in your work. Share some examples with your colleagues.
