Member-Get-A Member Campaign 2022 Update

Member-Get-A-MemberNew Campaign Deadline: August 31, 2022

Dear colleagues,

This year we need your help for the ever-growing influence of the International Association of Therapeutic Drug Monitoring and Clinical Toxicology. We ask every member to convince at least one colleague to join the IATDMCT. Let your colleagues and friends know about the association and persuade them to engage in a rewarding experience with us. One step at the time, let’s build a strong partnership together!

Joining IATDMCT is a fruitful experience particularly for early career scientists who can develop a professional network, benefit from prizes, and join the energizing Young Scientist Committee. They can join at low membership fees.

The member-get-a-member campaign is up and running!

As usual the top recruiter (with at least 50%-paying members) will gain a free registration for the IATDMCT Congress 2022 in Prague.

Visit the IATDMCT webpage for complete participation details!
