APBP is excited to announce a new member referral program kicking off today and running through September 12. This is your opportunity to create some buzz and be actively involved in the member recruitment process.
You can refer up to 50 friends and colleagues at a time using the online form. A link back to the join APBP page on the website will be automatically included when you send the invitation via the online form.
In order to get credit for the referral, the new member MUST include your name in the "referred by” field and must complete their dues transaction.
On Sept. 12 at ProWalk ProBike ProPlace, the member with the most referrals will be announced and receive a prize!
