Member Bring A Member

We invite you to help grow our incredible Society by inviting your co-workers, clients, and vendors to join us—you are the Society’s greatest resource for recruiting new members!

How to Participate

  1. Begin by encouraging your colleagues to become SMPTE members. Tell them about the benefits of membership. Give them examples of how your membership has helped you in your career.
  2. You can also invite others to join by sending them an email with a listing of the benefits, as well as for instructions on how to join. Click here for a sample email. Remember that SMPTE is GDPR-compliant, so only invite people you know personally. 
  3. When your colleagues are interested in joining, send them to the SMPTE Store to apply online. Be sure to tell them to enter your name on the application when asked: “Tell us who referred you to SMPTE”.

Program Rules  

  1. Only members in good standing can participate in this program.
  2. The program is not valid for renewals, Associate or student membership applications.
  3. There is no limit to the number of drawing entries that can be earned.
  4. To receive credit for a referral, the individual applying for membership must provide the name of the referrer/recruiter on their application; if SMPTE is unable to identify the referrer, no credit will be received.
  5. The program is valid for paid memberships through December 31, 2020; the individual applying for membership must be fully paid before that date.

You can help us grow by following four simple steps: 

  • Share your enthusiasm for SMPTE. Tell your colleagues why you joined, and how SMPTE membership has helped you.

  • Connect with your peers, co-workers and clients. Reach out to your network of professional colleagues and encourage them to become members. Let them know what benefits you get from membership.

  • Participate and receive recognition and rewards. For each new professional or executive member that you refer for the 2020 membership-year (through Dec. 31, 2020), you will be entered into a monthly drawing for free one-year membership renewal.

  • Grow SMPTE! Your Section and your Society will grow as more members participate both in-person and online. As the Society grows, so does your network of contacts.

Program rules and rewards are subject to change at any time.
