TRTA Fall Bring a Friend Contest

You and your friend could each win $100 and help TRTA reach 100,000 members!


Current TRTA members will get a new friend or colleague to join TRTA and you will both be entered to win a $100 gift card! If you win, your friend wins too! In total, three pairs of TRTA friends will win.

To be eligible for the drawing, you, the current member, must be sure your state dues for the 2019-2020 membership year are already paid.

Your friend must be a new TRTA member (your friend either has never been a member of TRTA before or has not been a member within the past three years) and must join TRTA between August 15, 2019 and November 15, 2019.

You must send a photo of the two of you posing together to by November 15, 2019 (see details below). After your information and your friend’s information has been verified by the TRTA membership department, you and your friend will be entered to win a $100 gift card. This is very similar to Each One Bring One, but instead, both you and your friend could win $100! If you win, your friend wins too! Three pairs of TRTA friends will win!

Other eligibility requirements:

You must email a photo featuring both you and your friend (the new TRTA member) posing together to by November 15, 2019 along with the following information:

  1. Your first and last name
  2. Your local unit (if applicable)
  3. Your mailing address
  4. Your friend’s first and last name
  5. Your friend’s mailing address
  6. The date your friend paid their state dues online or the date their dues were mailed to the TRTA office (mailed dues must be postmarked no later than November 15, 2019).

Please note, the photo and the information requested in items 1 through 6 are required to participate in the contest. Photos will be accepted BY EMAIL ONLY. Photos submitted by snail mail will not be accepted.

Facebook Promotion

Please note, TRTA will be using this photo of you and your friend for promotional purposes to support TRTA’s goal of reaching 100,000 members. This means we will be sharing your photo on the TRTA Facebook page and possibly the TRTA website and sharing your first names only (last names will not be shared). For example, a post on Facebook would read “Thank you to Janet from the Austin RTA. She got her friend Linda to join TRTA today to help TRTA reach 100K!” Another sample post could read “Thank you to Carolyn who lives in TRTA District 1. She got her friend Bob to join today TRTA to help TRTA reach 100K!”
