Member Referrals Scheme

Would you like to be rewarded for sharing the benefits of RSS membership?

If you know someone who you think would love to be a fellow of the RSS too, then don't keep it to yourself. A growing RSS means a greater strengthening of our statistical community, promotion of the discipline across the world and better networking opportunities amongst many other benefits!

We are nothing without our members. From council to conference, policy work to publications; our members are there at every turn. They are the corner-stone of all our activities and shape all of our work. Membership subscriptions are an essential source of income for us as an independently run charitable organisation, and mean that we can keep investing in the Society’s future.

We believe our members and the community they’ve created are our best assets. That’s why we’d love for you to tell others in your own words, why YOU are a member of one of the world's leading organisations promoting the importance of statistics and data, and encourage other like-minded people to join us.

How our Member Referrals Scheme works: 

Every time you introduce a new fellow*, you help make the RSS stronger, and to recognise your contribution towards this, we will enter you both into a prize draw with the chance to win free membership** for the following year. This prize draw will be run every 3 months where the entered pairs of names will be picked at random. Fellows do have the opportunity for multiple entries into the prize draw, receiving a new entry with each new fellow they refer.

The offer is available when the person you are referring joins online and enters your full-name, RSS membership number and/ or your email address when asked in the Member Referrals box. Please make sure to direct our new fellow to do so in order to be entered into the scheme prize draw.

How to get started:

Refresh yourself of the main benefits of membership

Improving knowledge
Having a voice
Sharing best practice
Professional development

Please pass on what your experience as a member of the RSS is like to any potential new fellows plus also share the many benefits of membership with them. 
If you have any further queries on the scheme or would like any promotional materials to distribute; please contact Anna Heath (

* Because e-Student and e-Teacher Membership is free, these referrals while very much appreciated are not eligible for prize draw entry.
** The free membership prize can be applied to fellowship, GradStat or CStat memberships, but not CSci.
