Refer a Friend to SAQA Today!
Refer a Friend - and you get benefits too!
YOU are a valued member of SAQA. We love hearing your feedback, seeing your art and following your creative process. We're here to help you along. Bet you have friends who would love SAQA as much as you do.
Let them see how our community of artists, our Journal, website, webinars and other resources can help get them to the next level.
How do I benefit?
Well, aside from giving friends a golden heads-up on SAQA services and opportunities, you will receive a reward point for each referral when your friend joins. Each reward point is worth $10 and can be used for membership renewals, store discounts and more!
By expanding the network of supporters, you also help ensure the financial viability of our organization. We want to continue offering traveling exhibitions, publications like the SAQA Journal and the Portfolios and make professional development for our members even more rewarding.
Sounds great, how do I start?
Send your friends to www.saqa.com/join to find out more about SAQA. Be sure to tell them to include your name in the Referral field when joining so you can get the credit you deserve!
Here are some other ideas:
- Are you participating in exhibitions?
Offer to talk about your work and spend 2 minutes introducing listeners to SAQA. They may never have heard of us or the great benefits we can offer.
- Do you go to guild meetings?
Make a presentation with your work or the SAQA Trunk Show and encourage folks to join us.
- Do you teach workshops?
You can offer your student a discount on a membership for taking your class - just contact Martha Sielman for a special discount code.
SAQA is ready to help you with membership brochures, presentations, promotional materials or even door prizes for a drawing at your presentation. Contact us at email@example.com for more details.
How do I get the referral credit?
First, your friend MUST include your full name when they complete the new member application form. Otherwise, we might not be able to figure out who you are!
Once your friend's membership is processed, we will send you an email the next month with instructions on how to use your reward points.
Reward points will continue to accumulate until YOU decide to cash them in (discounts will NOT be applied automatically).
Here are some current redemption options:

Where can I see my Reward Points?
To view your current reward points total, you will need to login to your mySAQA account and select the option to Manage your Account. The Reward Point section is located at the bottom.You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reward points are only entered at the beginning of each month and will not appear automatically when your friend joins. Reward points do not expire. The balance is only depleted at redemption time.
How do I redeem my Reward Points?
Points can only be redeemed at the levels noted above. You must submit a Reward Points Redemption request to let us know how to apply your points (membership renewal, store discount, free Reward item, or event registration).
You can submit your request for Reward Point redemption on the Manage your Account screen in mySAQA or via this link (login to mySAQA is required). Or, feel free to contact us directly at email@example.com.
Once your redemption is processed (usually within one day), your discount will apply automatically the next time you renew your membership or place a store order.
