ASPB Members will benefit by referring members to join ASPB.

Have you ever tried to find a colleague's address or phone number in 
the ASPB Membership Directory and been frustrated that you were 
unable to locate it? Indeed, many plant biologists do not think of 
themselves as plant physiologists and therefore have not joined the 
Society.  ASPB's membership, aware of the need to be more inclusive 
and to serve better the diverse interests of plant scientists, voted 
overwhelmingly in December to change the name of the Society to the 
American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB). By this change, ASPB 
hopes to include in its ranks all those colleagues who, up to now, 
have remained on the sidelines.

We are encouraging each ASPB member to look around their institution 
or among other colleagues in the field to find those people who could 
benefit from ASPB membership.

There are three winning reasons to participate in ASPB's membership drive:
* Your new recruit will win by enjoying the many benefits of ASPB membership!
* ASPB will win by gaining a stronger membership!
* You will win with special ASPB Awards!

NOT A MEMBER?  By joining ASPB today, you can get a full 2002 
membership at the previous year's rate, PLUS have your benefits start

you to become a member of ASPB, to benefit from its activities, and 
to help strengthen its efforts on behalf of plant biology worldwide.
