ORS Membership Challenge

ORS High Res 2016-25No one knows the benefits of ORS membership better than a member.  A personal invitation by a current ORS member is the most cited reason new members join the Society. Through the month of August we are seeking to recruit 250 new ORS members; 115 Active (established investigators) and 133 Associate (student/trainee).

We would like our members to recruit at least one new member.  For some added fun, each time you recruit a member your name will be added to a drawing for a special ORS prize!

Who is ready to accept the challenge? Please forward the online application to your recruit today!

If you need more information about benefits of membership or a more formal invitation email we’ve provided some additional resources.
