What is the purpose of ISACA’s 2017 Member Get a Member program?

ISACA members are our greatest assets and are significant contributors to the value of ISACA membership. Every time you recruit a new member, you strengthen ISACA. A vital and growing association means greater recognition of the profession, improved educational and networking opportunities for all members, and the advancement of the IS/IT audit, control, security, cyber security, risk, privacy and governance profession worldwide.

Can I refer myself to earn recruitment credit?

No, you cannot refer yourself. To earn credit for the 2017 Member Get a Member program, you must be an ISACA member and you must recruit individuals who are not current members.

My recruit didn’t enter my ID, can I still get credit for recruiting this colleague?

No, if your colleague did not use your member ID number, you will not earn credit for recruiting that individual. For you to earn recruitment credit through the Member Get a Member program, your colleagues must enter your ISACA Member ID number when joining. If you do not know your ISACA Member ID, you can locate it on your myPROFILE page or contact us at 847.660.5505 or support.isaca.org.

If I encouraged my colleague to join ISACA before the 2017 program start date, can I get recruitment credit?

To earn recruitment credit through ISACA’s 2017 Member Get a Member program, your colleague must be a new member of ISACA who has referenced your member ID number during the membership application process between 1 August and 31 December 2017.

How will I know if I have successfully recruited a new member?

After ISACA verifies that your recruited colleague/s have successfully joined ISACA and entered your member ID number on their membership applications, you will receive an email notification at the end of each month to reflect the number of new members you have recruited.

When will I receive my reward if I earned one?

With their permission, ISACA will announce winners and reward recipients on the Winners' Circle page. Winners and reward recipients will be notified by the end of February 2018 and then prizes will begin getting processed/shipped. See program participation Rules.

Email support.isaca.org or call us at +1.847.660.5505 and we will be happy to help you.

Every time you recruit a new member, you strengthen ISACA. A vital and growing membership means greater recognition of the profession and an expanded global community for enhanced networking and knowledge-sharing.

Quick Tips:

  • Use personal contact or personal messages
  • Share on social media
  • Share the benefits of ISACA and how it has helped you professionally
  • Start with your coworkers and then expand to your larger network
  • Follow up, and remind them to use your Member ID when they join

Recruiting a new member is easy! Follow these steps to get started today:

  1. Start with those most familiar to you and expand your efforts to your larger professional network.
  2. Invite a colleague to attend an ISACA local chapter or ISACA event.
  3. Spread the word on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn—invite those interested to contact you for your member ID number (sharing your number in posts viewable by people you do not know can have unintended consequences). Once they are interested in joining, always have your colleagues or friends enter your member ID number when they sign up so that you get credit for recruiting them.

Here are a couple of tips for using your connections to get members and get rewarded:

  • As a member, you can broadcast this text in your Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn: “Interested in ISACA membership? Ask me about the benefits I receive as a member.”
  • Once they join, new members can broadcast this text in their Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn: “I just joined ISACA to enhance my skills, expand my professional knowledge and network with a global community of colleagues. Want to join me? Ask me how…”
  • Do not share your member ID number in posts viewable by people you do not know as this can have unintended consequences.

Remember: once your colleagues and friends become ISACA members, they too can join in the Member Get a Member program and get rewarded.

Dear <enter the name of your colleague here>

I have found so much value in my ISACA® membership that I wanted to extend a personal invitation to you. ISACA is currently sponsoring a Member Get a Member program, and I believe you would benefit from joining ISACA as I have.

Many professionals join ISACA because of its globally recognized certifications-Certified Information Systems Auditor® (CISA®), Certified Information Security Manager® (CISM®), Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT® (CGEIT®) and Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control™ (CRISC™). Members then gain access to a global network of free resources and discounts on conferences, webinars, training, certification exam registration fees and prep materials, the industry-leading COBIT® 5 framework and a global professional network of more than 159,000 professionals. Pretty quickly, they find ISACA membership invaluable for keeping on top of the ever-changing world of IT audit, control, security, cyber security, risk, privacy and governance. Learn more about ISACA's many benefits!

When you join ISACA today, you get the remainder of 2017 FREE with your paid 2018 membership! Plus, when you sign up online before 31 December 2017, and enter my ISACA member ID number, your new member processing fee will be waived!

Join me and tens of thousands of professionals who are benefiting from ISACA membership. Sign up online today at www.JoinISACA.org.

Yours sincerely,
<Add your Name and Title>
