Welcome to the AOCS Community and thank you recruiters

At the end of January our new member (Active members) total reached 158 or 37% of our goal of 425 for dues year 2020. Some of our new members were encouraged to join by an AOCS member as part of our Member-Refer-A-Friend program. This new initiative awards you with a US $20 gift card for every new Active member that joins, but make sure they list your name on the membership application. Recruiters can earn up to US $100 for the entire membership year. In addition, we will recognize all recruiters of Actives, students and Corporate Members online, as a way of saying THANK YOU!

Ryan Dietzenbach recommended Doug Reuscher join.

Why did these members refer people to the society? Prof. Rotimi Aluko, University of Manitoba, wrote:
“Nancy is my PhD student and membership of AOCS will benefit her academic and professional development. This is also an excellent means of recruiting leaders of tomorrow for the organization.”

Who will be featured next month? Think of a colleague or research collaborator that would benefit from AOCS. Get more details online and do your part to help our Society grow!
