Member Referral Program

You are passionate about the aging profession which is why you are a GSA member. Share this passion with your colleagues and encourage them to join GSA! Recruiting a new member helps grow GSA’s rich and diverse network of researchers, practitioners, educators, and other professionals. Connect your colleagues to GSA’s strong network of professionals and be rewarded for your efforts.

Between April 11 – May 6, 2022, GSA is running a special member referral program. 

For every new member you refer…

  • You will be entered into a drawing to win a $500 Visa Gift Card. You will receive one entry for each new member you refer.
  • The new member will be entered to win a free registration to the GSA 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting (up to a $640 value)

Referring a member is easy to do

  • E-mail a colleague with the sample email below and include a link to GSA’s member benefits. Be sure to direct your referral to provide your name when they apply for membership online.

Sample email:

Dear (Name),

As one of my professional colleagues, I want to share with you some information on membership at The Gerontological Society of America (GSA). I have been a member for several years and am grateful for all that I’ve gained from it.

GSA keeps me informed of all the latest research, trends, and more. As an interdisciplinary Society, it brings together professionals from all walks of life, and we collaborate and share information to advance the field in so many ways.

Please take the time to explore the many benefits GSA has to offer for professionals in the field of aging. You can visit their website to learn more. Now is a great time to join because GSA is running a special promotion. If you join by May 6, GSA will enter your name into a drawing to win a free registration to the GSA 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting (up to a $640 value). In order to be entered into the drawing, you must enter my name in the “referred by” section of the application. I hope that your membership proves to be as valuable in your career as it has been in mine.
