Be an IASP Champion!
Did you know that more than half of IASP members first join after being encouraged to do so by a current IASP member? If you have recommended that a colleague or student join – thank you. The best way to make IASP the organization you want it to be is by championing it to others in the field. Build your network and create the IASP of the future. When a new member joins and enters the name of the IASP member who referred him or her, we will add that person on our new IASP Wall of Champions. Already referred people? Tweet us at @IASPPAIN with #IASPChampion.
