Membership Drive FAQs
Where do I find new members? Prospective members can be non-members attending chapter meetings, fellow engineers at work or other stations, suppliers or educators.
How do I get credit for new members? Direct prospective members to the SBE website to join online or provide them with a copy of the membership application and ask him/her to fill in your name on the line "Sponsor's Name/Who introduced you to SBE". Once the new member's membership application has been approved, your name will be placed in the prize drawing, which takes place in June 2017.
