AWS Summer Recruitment Drive

Thursday, May 31, 2018

Studies show that female physicians earn close to 20% less than their male counterparts. This summer, AWS is hosting a membership recruitment drive offering 20% off new Regular and New Surgeon membership dues in response to this widening gap in compensation.

Do your part to help us level the playing field. Current AWS members can recruit their friends and colleagues to join AWS and take advantage of this promotion by signing into our online membership referral tool.

AWS members may also earn referral credit if their recruit enters their full name and city/state in the "Who referred you to AWS?" box in the online membership application. Your recruit will need to enter promo code Equity when completing their online membership application to save 20% off their dues (available for new Regular and New Surgeon memberships only).

Contest winners will be announced at the 2018 Annual Conference in Boston.

In addition, any current member who recruits three or more new Regular or New Surgeon members will earn 20% off their next membership renewal invoice!

The AWS Recruitment Drive runs June 1 - September 30, 2018.

Recruitment Tips

  • Identify your prospects. Review your network of professional colleagues and identify those who have never been AWS members and would benefit from joining.
  • Know the benefits of membership. Review the membership benefits page to provide prospects with more information about AWS membership benefits.
  • Share key facts. Access the AWS Gender Equity Toolkit for more information and talking points.
  • Give examples. Provide your colleague with examples of how your AWS membership has benefited you in your career. A positive testimonial can be a great recruitment tool!
  • Follow up. Check back in a week to see whether they have joined and ask if they have any questions.

If you have any questions, please contact Thanks in advance for your participation!
