To aid you in becoming an OPA All-Star, and partnering with OPA to make your profession stronger, MGM information and strategies are included in the following letter from Jeff Steckman, Membership Services & Development Committee Chair.

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 2019 Annual Conference registration fee! Sign up 14 new members and you are in for free!** You will also receive recognition as an exclusive member of our OPA All-Star Recruiter Club. Membership applications and conference registrations must be received by OPA by the Early Bird Deadline in order to be eligible for this promotion.

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. It's as simple as passing along the following link to the online MGM application;

You may also contact for additional membership materials.

Please share what OPA means to you. 

Here are a few tips to successfully engage prospective members:

1. Don’t be afraid to ask! If you don’t ask, you won’t know.
2. Be prepared for them to join right then. Have an application or application link on hand
3. Ask for contact information. You can reach out to them later to see if they have questions and encourage them to join.
4. Don’t worry about difficult questions. A vast amount of information is available on our website, or if you need help contact the OPA office at (614)389-3236.  

Jeff Steckman, R.Ph., PharmD
OPA Membership Committee Chair
