NCTA Member Referral Program

Know of a company that would benefit from the activities, visibility and resources an NCTA membership offers? As a valued member of our association, you can play an active role in helping us grow our membership and contribute to the strength of the statewide tech community by encouraging those in your network to join.

Here's how it works:

To thank you for each referral that results in membership, NCTA is offering quarterly prizes! For each new member that joins from your referral, you'll receive one entry into a prize drawing where you could win:

$100 Amazon Gift Card + 1 complimentary registration to an upcoming NCTA signature event of your choice (ie. NC Tech Awards, Outlook for Tech, State of Technology Conference)

PLUS each new member that you’ve referred that joins also receives a complimentary registration to an upcoming signature event of their choice.

Winners will be notified via email each quarter and announced in the  the NCTA newsletter.

How can I spread the word to my network?

  • Send an informational email to your network; (use this template letter)
  • Utilize social media! Post a discussion in LinkedIn and/or send a tweet to your Twitter followers.
  • Send an introduction email between your referral(s) and anyone on the NCTA membership development team (staff list here); No lists – direct introductions only.

How do I get credit for my referral?

Make sure the referred company enters your name into the ‘refereed by’ section of the NCTA online membership form; and/or notify the NCTA membership team of the companies you’ve encouraged to join. We will notify you in real-time when a new member joins that was directly because of your referral and encouragement.
