Member-Get-A-Member Program

Pay it Forward . . . and Get Paid Back!

It's Easy!

Tell your colleague to list you as a referring member on a membership application and IECA rewards your efforts in recruiting new members.

How it Works:

  • Receive $10 off your dues renewal for every new member you refer who joins IECA.
  • Referred members receive a one-time coupon for $10 good towards the cost of their membership.

Rules of the Program:

  • Only open to current IECA members (Students and Emeritus memberships not eligible).
  • Completed applications (print), with full dues payment, must be submitted with the recruiter’s membership number or full name in the proper recruiter box that is provided on the application.
  • Referee must not have been a member of IECA for the past 3 years.
  • Applications received without a recruiter's valid membership number or full name will be disqualified; there will be no retroactive qualifying of recruiters.
  • All amounts are quoted in US dollars.
  • There is a maximum award amount of US$90.
  • Awards will be valid toward IECA dues only. In addition, at your option the value of the award may be donated to the IECA Soil Fund.
  • IECA member-get-a-member awards earned are not redeemable for cash.
  • Member-get-a-member awards must be used at the time of renewal.

IECA is the foremost organization for those involved in or concerned about soil erosion control. Membership (in IECA) tells others you take erosion control seriously and you want to help make a difference.
