Win awesome prizes through the new member referral contest

IUGA Member referral contest extended through July 25

One of the many ways IUGA gets new members is through referrals by other members. To show our appreciation for those referrals, any IUGA member who refers a member by July 25, 2016 will be entered into a drawing to win a prize (iPad, Kindle Fire or Jaybird Bluetooth Headphones). We have two of each prize available, so six prizes altogether! Your name will be entered into the drawing for each time you recruit a new member. So, the more members you recruit, the higher your odds are of winning. The winners will be randomly selected and randomly assigned one of the prizes. The top recruiter will earn two tickets to the President’s Reception at the IUGA Annual Meeting in Cape Town, South Africa.
