Be an IASP Champion! Did you know that more than half of IASP members first join after a current IASP member encourages them to do so? If you have recommended that a colleague or student join – thank you. The best way to make IASP the organisation you want it to be is by championing it to others in the field. When a new member joins and enters the name of the referring IASP member, we will add that person to our new IASP Wall of Champions. Already referred someone? Tweet us at @IASPPAIN with #IASPChampion.
