Refer a member

Do you enjoy being a member of the RSS? If so, why not recommend us to your friends and colleagues and you could win a year’s free membership.

The strength of the RSS lies in our active community of more than 9,000 members across the world. RSS members are the driving force behind all of the work we do, and that’s why we’d love you to help expand our membership by encouraging other like-minded people to join. By way of thanks, we’ll enter all participants into our prize draw to win a year’s free membership.

How it works

Just ask the person you've referred to enter your full name, six-digit RSS membership number (found on your welcome letter and renewal notice) and/or email address in the Member Referrals box when applying. You will both automatically be entered into our quarterly prize draw to win 12 months' free membership for the following year*. Don’t forget, there’s no limit to the number of times you can enter each prize draw – the more people you recommend, the greater your chance of winning!

To help you talk about the benefits of membership, we’ve created a small ‘Join the community at the RSS’ leaflet to hand out to your friends and colleagues. Contact the membership team at for copies of the leaflet.

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