Member Recruitment Campaign

Introducing SAGES Member Recruitment Campaign
The Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) challenges all Active  and Candidate members to encourage your colleagues, friends, associates, and contemporaries who are students, physicians and experts to join SAGES. You are our best source for involving new members. You have experienced the value of SAGES membership, and your support of the society is the most effective tool for recruitment.

Everyone Wins
When new members join SAGES everyone wins! New members receive access to all the benefits of membership including cutting-edge education, professional development, networking, camaraderie and much more! In addition to helping to advance your colleague’s career, every member who successfully refers a new member will be listed in SCOPE, on SAGES website and highlighted at the Annual Meeting.  More importantly, each time you refer a new member, your name will be entered into a drawing to win free registration for Surgical Spring Week, SAGES 2016 Annual Meeting March 16-19, 2016 in Boston, MA.
