SC&RA honors its top member recruiters with a President's Award “in recognition of distinguished performance on behalf of the Specialized Carriers and Rigging Association.” Members who help bring in five new members during the previous year automatically receive the award. A smaller version goes to recruiters of three or four members. Members are eligible to receive one of these awards each year.
Reflecting their importance to the association, the awards are presented by the SC&RA president during the closing night awards and recognition dinner at the annual conference. The SC&RA Membership Directory prominently displays names of President's Award winners. They also are acknowledged in American Cranes & Transport, International Cranes & Specialized Transport and the SC&RA newsletter.
Even member recruiters who fall short of the President's Award requirements receive recognition. Whenever the association welcomes new members in the SC&RA Newsletter, the listings include the names of recruiters.
Members receive full credit whenever they notify SC&RA of a prospect who later joins the association. Prospects who click on the “Join SC&RA Today” link on the SC&RA web site at www.scranet.org go directly to a membership application that asks whether they were referred by someone. Membership applications, in addition to simple membership lead forms, are available by calling (703) 698-0291.
