Interested in winning a $500 gift card to Nordstrom or other fabulous prizes? 


As MWL launches its 2017-2018 membership campaign, we invite all MWL members to reach out to colleagues and friends and invite them to join MWL, or to upgrade to a Premier Membership.  For each new member you’ve referred to MWL or who commits to a membership upgrade, you will gain entry for fabulous prizes.


Entry into the contest will be gained for each of your referrals who joins or upgrades between June 1st and August 18th, 2017, including yourself! 


Contest winners will be announced at the 2017 MWL Committee Fair and Summer Social on August 29, 2017.  (Registration will be open in the coming weeks.)

What Can I Win?


·         The person with the greatest number of entries will win the $500 Nordstrom gift card (generously donated by MWL Board Member Susan Gallagher)!

·         All entries will also be included in two random drawings for one of two prizes:

o   $100 gift card (generously donated by MWL Board Member Bridget McCauley Nason)

o   Two coaching sessions from Rock Solid Consultants (generously donated by MWL Board Member Kristin Haugen).




What Counts as an Entry?


·         Each new member who joins as a 2017-2018 MWL member. 

·         Referral of a new member who joins as a 2017-2018 MWL member and lists your name as their referral source on their membership form. 

·         NOTE:  A person counts as a “new member” if the person was not a current member for any part of 2016-2017. 

·         Current member upgrades, from a 2016-2017 standard-level membership (i.e. “11+ membership” or “retired” membership, etc.), to a 2017-2018 Premier Membership.

·         Premier Membership upgrade to a higher Premier level (i.e., Emerald to Sapphire, etc.). 

·         Current Diamond level members who renew again at the Diamond level.

·         Upgrading your own standard-level membership to a 2017-2018 Premier Membership also counts as an entry! 



How Do I Participate?


·         Extend a personal invitation to your friends and colleagues to join MWL or to upgrade their current membership to a Premier Membership! 

·         [Check out this email template to get you started:    WORD    PDF].

·         Upon submitting their membership application or renewal, ask each person to list YOUR NAME in the referral box on the form as requested (so you receive credit for the referral). 

·         If you want to make sure to get credit for all your referrals, keep track of who you contact and send the names to Debra Pexa ( by August 21st, 2017. 

·         We’ll then cross-reference current memberships to make sure we add up all your entries.
