Member Sponsorship Campaign

Division 16 is excited to announce our Member Sponsorship Campaign for 2016. Although you know the value of membership, perhaps there is someone you know – a colleague, early career professional, supervisee – who is not yet a member of the Division. As you are renewing your own commitment to the Division for 2016, we hope that you will consider “gifting” a membership to someone who is not currently a member.  As a Sponsor Member, you can purchase as many gift memberships as you wish at a discounted $20 rate.

Although the concept is simple, the results could be tremendous in terms of increasing Division engagement.  Giving a membership provides the recipient with access to all Division 16 resources such as The School PsychologistSchool Psychology Quarterly, and members-only listservs. More importantly, however, it shows your support of that person’s professional development and helps to bring more supporters of school psychology to the table.

To join in the Member Sponsorship Campaign and give the gift of membership to someone you know, please find the required form here.
