To aid you in becoming an OPA All-Star, and partnering with OPA to make your profession stronger, MGM information and strategies follow.
Dear Valued OPA Member,
As pharmacists, we lead demanding, complex and sometimes hectic lives, but over the past few years, I have made a dedicated effort to become more involved with OPA.
Through my experience leading the Member Services & Development committee, whose primary task is to grow and strengthen the membership of OPA, I have come to appreciate all the benefits OPA provides, especially those tools that enable me to better balance my career and my life. Now, I encourage you to share your OPA experiences with our colleagues and convince - encourage - persuade them to join our Association through our Member-Get-a-Member (MGM) program. By participating, you will be strengthening our voice and our profession; AND for each new* member you recruit, you will receive a $20 discount on your 2016 Annual Conference registration fee! Sign up 14 <b>new</b> members and you are in for free!** You will also receive recognition as an exclusive member of our OPA All-Star Recruiter Club.
MGM programs are a powerful way to for us to spread the value of OPA to our friends, classmates and colleagues who do not understand the positive impact OPA has on our profession. I hope you will become an All-Star Recruiter and use the coupons or application in the MGM pull out section located in the middle of the November 2015 Ohio Pharmacist journal.
