Member-Get-A-Member (TAPA) Referral Program

Most new members say they joined TAPA simply because someone shared why it’s important. As an active TAPA member, you know first-hand the value your membership provides.

The “Member-Get-a-Member” campaign is the ideal opportunity to share your professional successes by encouraging your non-member colleagues to join. We know that you understand the value of your TAPA membership and now is the perfect time to reach out to your professional contacts and recruit them to join. 

This membership initiative is your opportunity to share the value of TAPA membership with your friends and colleagues. Not only can you take pride in supporting TAPA, but you can also earn a dues discount for your company.

  • When a current member refers and signs-up a new SSP Membership, they receive $500 discount from their own company dues the next year.
