Member Referral Program

Be a Part of SMPTE’s Growth – Each one, Reach one! 

We invite you to help the Society grow by inviting your co-workers, clients, and vendors to join us.   As a member, you are the Society’s greatest resource for recruiting new members. Your participation in the SMPTE "Each One, Reach One" campaign is essential to strengthening the Society.  

Why should you participate?  More members increases the knowledge network we build as professionals.  More members means more experts to participate and contribute to Standards and Education – across the Society and on the local level too. 

Together we can build a brighter future for you and SMPTE!








You can help us grow by following four simple steps:  Share.  Connect.  Participate.  Grow.


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 2019-2020 membership-year (from 1 Sept. 2019 through 31 Dec. 2020), you will be entered into a monthly drawing for a free one-year membership renewal.

Your name will appear on our Top Recruiters list on and in the SMPTE Monthly eNewsletter. There will be a grand prize drawing for a free registration to the SMPTE 2021 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition in October, or another SMPTE-run event in 2021. 




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. 


How to Participate
