The Member-Get-A-Member Campaign offers current ACS members the opportunity to recruit new paid members and receive a Periodic Table of the Elements blanket.
And one of the most important requirements in recruiting a new member is ... a Member-Get-A-Member application must be used! It is the only way the nominator and nominee names are linked together and appear on a blanket ship list. Please, do not use the "Join ACS" button above.
To start, Nominate someone through your ACS account ...
Using your ACS Web ID, send your Nominee an MGM e-invite to join the American Chemical Society. You may add a personal message below your name in the evite.
After the MGM evite has been sent ...
Within your Nominee’s e-invite they will be asked to click on a link that will take them directly to an online application.
If you prefer, there are PDF applications below for you to print out and use instead.
Nominee has submitted their application ...
Once the nominee's application is submitted and dues have been paid, ACS will ship you, the Nominator, a blanket. Blanket shipping lists are pulled the first Friday of each new month.
Each time you recruit a new member you will earn one of these coveted Periodic Table of the Elements blankets and there is no limit on the number of new members you may recruit and blankets you can earn!
(Blankets are not available for purchase.)
REMINDER: The above JOIN ACS button is not associated with the Member-Get-A-Member Campaign. Please do not use.
Please use the links within this MGM page (including the blanket banner to the right) to invite your nominees to join. Remind your nominees that they are to use the links within your MGM e-invite to complete their application. Those MGM links tie your names together.
