Member Get Member Campaign 2019

Are your dietetic colleagues or friends BDA members? If not, please spread the word within your workplaces by recommending the BDA membership community to them. From April - June we'll be running our member get member campaign, where for each new member you recommend, we’ll give you a £10 amazon voucher as a thank you, and there’s no limit on the number you can claim! (See FAQ's below.)

We know that our members are the best possible source for new members who could benefit from all the BDA has to offer and thats why we rely on member advocates like you to help grow our membership community. The more members we have, the stronger our collective voice, and the more we can do to lobby and influence government, promote the profession nationally and internationally to wider audiences, and ultimately to drive demand for dietetics.

Helping you spread the word

As part of our campaign, here are a few useful resources to help you spread the word in your dietetic departments:

Top valued benefits - if you're speaking to a potential member, here's a handy overview of the top most valued benefits our members say they can't do without:

  • Our dedicated Trade Union team who provide support across a wide range of workplace issues.
  • Unlimited access to PEN - the huge dynamic online evidence based resource (worth £390)
  • Access to specialist groups, local branch events and lots of great CPD opportunities

When is the campaign running?
Referrals will be accepted from 1 April – 30 June 2019

Who can recommend who?
All BDA members (except for dietetic students) can recommend/refer a new applicant to join us in any BDA membership category (except for student membership)

How do I receive a £10 Amazon voucher?
It's easy - for each new applicant you recommend, after they've joined us online, they simply need to email us at stating your full name as the existing member. We will send you a £10 voucher in the post to the 'preferred address' you have listed in your MY BDA profile as a thank you, (and they will receive one too as a new member incentive.)

Are there any limits on the number of Amazon vouchers I can claim?
No, so long as you refer within the campaign dates, there's no limit!

I am a BDA volunteer (e.g. trade union rep / group or branch committee member / media spokesperson etc) can I still recommend membership as part of this campaign?
Yes of course - you are our advocates already, so thank you!
