Any NALS member that completes the attached form and recruits five NEW members will get their national dues waived for the year (this exludes state/local dues). The five new memberships must be in the same classification of membership as the waived membership, for example if you are a regular member, then you must sign up five new members in that same classification. The new member must report you as their sponsor when they submit their application to NALS. You must complete the .pdf waiver form that will be available on-line and submit to the Resource Center. You will indicate all five NEW members by name that you sponsored. As long as everything matches up and all five new members have been acquired within the time frame, the national dues will be waived for the year and you will only be required to pay state and local dues.
