Throughout March the RYA is giving members the chance to take home not one but two special gifts when they refer their friends and family to RYA membership.
The RYA’s Refer a Friend programme rewards existing members for spreading the word about RYA membership to their friends and family. “Our members are the best advocates for membership”, commented Gemma Garrett, RYA Membership Engagement Officer.
“Normally our referring members get a choice of thank you gifts but we decided we would offer an additional incentive to take part in the Refer a Friend scheme by giving them both gifts throughout March – so that they don’t have to make the difficult decision of choosing a favourite!”, Gemma continued.
For every member who refers a friend or family member who decides to sign up as an RYA member and enjoy all the benefits RYA membership provides, we will give the referring member an RYA Umbrella and an RYA branded Overboard dry bag to say thank you for helping us spread the word about membership.
Not only do the referring members enjoy their free gifts but new members also enjoy a 25% discount off their first year’s subscription, so it’s a win, win for everyone.
“It is all very well the RYA telling people about the benefits of membership but nothing is more powerful than an existing member extolling the virtues of membership and the benefits it affords them in their boating lives to potential new members.” Gemma added.
As well as a whole host of benefits, rewards, discounts and offers, every member that joins the RYA adds their voice to the existing 110,000 plus members in support of the work of the RYA does ensuring that legislators, regulators and other authorities understand and take account of recreational boating activity.
Taking part in the Refer a Friend scheme is really simple.
