Surveys of USPRA members indicate that the primary reason why practitioners joined and sustained their membership is to be part of a prominent group of individuals committed to psychiatric rehabilitation (85%), and to network with other like-minded individuals (56%).
USPRA needs your influence and involvement to help us expand our representation and strengthen our voice by inviting like-minded colleagues into our organization! After all, YOU are the greatest testimony to the benefit of membership!
Why invite a colleague?
By influencing a friend, staff or associate to experience an USPRA membership, you will:
- Expand your network of association industry professionals;
- Strengthen USPRA to ensure the voices of associations are heard and the rights of the industry are protected;
- Play an integral role in helping associations transform psychiatric rehabilitation through the power of collaborative action; and
- Receive national recognition in PSR Connections newsletter and on the USPRA website.
How do you invite colleagues?
It’s easy to invite colleagues! Feel free to pass along an overview of member benefits (PDF), available 24/7 online, and please inform them that we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on their membership! Then, simply pass this membership application to the individual or organization that would benefit from a relationship with us, and remind them to use your name on the “Who introduced you to USPRA” sponsor line! (Let them know that if, for some reason, within the first six months of their joining they do not find value in their membership…we will refund their full member dues!!)
