11/12/2014 - New York Capital Chapter Membership Campaign

Welcome to our Chapter's Member-Get-A-Member Campaign- it's your opportunity to share the value of an AGA membership with your friends and colleagues, and earn BIG rewards in the process!

Every time you sponsor a new member you enhance AGA and our Chapter. A growing AGA means a greater appreciation of the government accountability profession, improved educational and networking opportunities for all members, and the advancement of government financial management nationwide.

This year with the NY Capital Campaign we've made referring colleagues to AGA easier than ever!

How the NY Capital Campaign Works:

1. Download a membership application and send it to the AGA National Office (address is on the aaplication) or you can also order applications by contacting Raymond Harris, Vice President of Membership at or our contact us page.

2. Tell your peers and co-workers about AGA! Simply encourage them to fill out AGA's membership application or complete the application online. Be sure to include your name in the sponsor's name category on the application.

3. You will be eligible to receive a sponsor pin when your first referral joins.

4. After six of your referrals join (prior to January 31, 2015), you earn FREE DUES during the 2015-2016 membership year.

5. The NY Capital Campaign will end on April 30, 2015, the grand prize winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

More Prizes - Everyone Wins!

The more members recruited the more chances to win.
