How to Participate

The 2014 Member-Get-a-Member Campaign is underway. It runs from January 1, 2014 - March 25, 2014.

Encourage a colleague to join INFORMS and increase your impact and engagement with INFORMS.

You are the greatest testimony to the benefit of INFORMS membership. By influencing a colleague, staff member, or associate to experience membership in INFORMS you will:

  • Expand your network of association industry professionals
  • Strengthen INFORMS to ensure the voices of O.R. and analytics professionals are heard and the rights and interests of the industry are protected
  • Encourage a colleague to find an association “home” with INFORMS
  • Display your leadership abilities
  • Play an integral role in helping associations transform society through the power of collaborative action, and
  • Receive national recognition in OR/MS Today, INFORMS E-News, and the INFORMS website.

We hope to see your name in the spotlight during our periodic campaigns. As you recruit new members, we will also enter your name into a drawing for great prizes as our way of thanking you.

It’s easy to recruit a new member! Simply do this:

  • Consider which colleagues can benefit from an INFORMS membership
  • Go to
  • Fill out the modest amount of information requested
  • Attach a personal greeting to the membership invitation we have already composed
  • Send this valuable e-mail to your colleague

That’s it! Each colleague that you recruit receives several special gifts upon joining INFORMS: a free membership in the INFORMS community of their choice (for regular members only), 2 recent titles in our Topics in OR book series, The Operations Research Center at MIT and Two-Person Zero-Sum Games 3rd, and the 2009 Tutorials in Operations Research CD.

Need assistance with recruiting new members? Contact the INFORMS Customer Service Team or call us at 443-757-3500 or 800-446-3676.
