New Member Recruiting Contest
The 2014 FICP New Member Recruiting Contest is underway and this year's prizes include opportunities to attend the 2015 Annual Conference, November 15-18, 2015, at the Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas. Thank you to those who have already recruited new planner members. These new members can leverage the numerous membership benefits and services that have been critical to your professional development. Even though the contest is over, spread the word about the valuable educational and networking opportunities FICP membership provides.
Start reaching out to your network to share the benefits of FICP membership. Need tips on how to spread the word? Here are some ideas:
- Send an email invitation to your network
- Share the benefits of membership with your peers
- Add a link to the FICP website to your emails
- Pass along the membership brochure or membership video to your colleagues
- Post tweets and other announcements on your social media channels
- The Hospitality Partner who recruits the most new planner** members between October 1, 2013, and September 30, 2014, will receive a complimentary registration ($5,175 value) to the 2015 Annual Conference November 15-18, 2015, at the Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas. Note: In the event of a tie, the longer-standing Hospitality Partner will win the prize and no second place prize will be awarded.
- Any hospitality partner that recruits one (1) or more meeting planners to join FICP and register for the 2014 Annual Conference by September 30 will earn a spot at the 2014 Annual Conference, but must still pay a discounted registration fee of $2,800 ($5,175 value). Note: Limited spots are available for hospitality partners to attend through new member recruitment.
- This is a recruiting effort to build a strong membership base. Hospitality Partners are not allowed to pay for planner membership dues and fees associated with attending the conference (registration, hotel, airfare, ect).
- Hospitality Partners that qualify through new member recruiting must attend the Annual Conference of the same year. No transfers will be made to future Annual Conferences or other FICP events.
