Recruitment & Rewards

AWHONN’s Recruitment and Rewards Program allows members to recruit future members while getting rewarded at the same time. Spreading the word about AWHONN to other nurse professionals informs of the many ways an AWHONN membership can help make a difference in their professional field as well as enhance their careers. Be rewarded for your hard work and earn various prizes as you recruit new members. Prizes are rewarded based on your total number of new recruits. All AWHONN members can become a recruiter. 


*Renewing and rejoining members are not eligible as new members.* 









This handy brochure can be printed out and passed out wherever you interact with prospect members: in a conference, interacting with nursing students, or within your office. Print out the brochure; fill in your recruiter information prior to distribution of the brochure, and once a potential member completes the remainder, they can either scan or mail the brochure for your convenience.
