Reach Out! 2012 USCIB Member-Get-a-Member Drive

For over 60 years, USCIB has been the voice for American multinationals around the world by working to shape a level playing field where trade and investment can flourish. You depend on USCIB to represent your interests, both through direct representations to the U.S. and foreign governments, and through our engagement in international policy-making and regulatory bodies. And we count on you, too!

We know our current members are the best possible source for new members who could benefit from all USCIB has to offer. Every time you recruit a new member, you strengthen USCIB. And a stronger, growing and vital USCIB means greater recognition of our mission and the advancement of our global advocacy to address international regulatory policies affecting your business.

This year, with our “Member-Get-a-Member” drive, we’re made referring a colleague to USCIB easier than ever. There are several ways you can help USCIB grow:

  • You can simply provide us with your colleagues’ names and contact information and we’ll send them a membership information package.
  • You can make a personal introduction, let them know why you support USCIB and ask them to talk with us about membership. Send us their name and contact information and we’ll contact them.
  • You can invite a colleague to join you at a USCIB event or committee meeting to experience USCIB in action. Let us know and we’ll be sure to flag this for follow up.
  • You can direct them to to see what we offer. Again, let us know your colleagues’ name and contact information so we can follow up.

So help us Reach Out! And together we’ll make 2012 a banner year for membership in USCIB. For more information on how you can help, contact Alison Hoiem, manager of member services, at 202-682-1291, or e-mail her at
