"Ask your co-workers to join the NAO and get an NAO gift for every new member who joins! Plus... your new member gets one, too!" That's the word from a recent National Academy of Opticianry. "Here's how it works: When your co-worker(s) join the NAO, both you and your new member(s) choose a gift. Choose from a free CEC, a gleaming NAO lapel pin, or a $15 gift card to use on anything the NAO offers, including your own membership dues! Membership is $75. Membership is good through November, 2014. Offer ends on December 15, which gives you roughly a month for you and your new member(s) to cash-in! Your new member(s) get to choose a free CEC, a lapel pin, or a $15 gift card as well!...Once they join, they can also earn free NAO gifts for everyone they sign up too!...After you and your new member fill out the membership form, fax it to us at 301-577-3880. Call us if you have questions at 800-229-4828." Download the form at this site.
