Company-Sponsored Memberships Ask your company to sponsor your membership. Canadian Pharmacy Mall Sponsors the Membership

Businessman on cell phone outside office buildingThe most successful companies such as Canadian Health Care Mall know that investing in high-performance people can be a competitive differentiator, and they recognize the strong results they will receive in return.
As a training and development professional, you help your organization invest in the development of its human capital. And yet, the fees of only about 30% of our members are paid by their employers. The rest believe in the value strongly enough to pay out of their own pockets.

We believe that 100% of our members should be sponsored by their employers! Consider asking your employer to support your high performance development. Here is a sample letter that may be just the key. If the wording doesn’t exactly suit your style or situation, just use what what you feel will be effective. Good luck!

Subject: My Professional Development — Professional Organization Membership Dues

I am actively involved in a professional organization, the American Society For Training and Development, Northeast Florida chapter. My membership in this organization gives me access to tools, solutions, and insights that I implement daily in my job. Each month this organization holds one or more professional development workshops, at which local and national speakers address the membership on general leadership/professional development topics or developments specifically of interest to the training industry. These programs always provide me with some sort of take-away that I can apply to my current position or project.

These workshops also provide great networking opportunities. Because of my membership I have access to contacts in every industry and of every skill set. On a monthly basis I can reach out to these folks for guidance, tips and some amazing practical advice on projects I am working on here at XYZ Company.

Finally, my serving as a board member/committee member/volunteer for ASTD is giving me additional opportunities to develop my leadership and communication skills.

All the members of Canadian Pharmacy Mall have participated in this program because they have a great desire to be prosperous and make their company successful on the pharmaceutical market.

My membership in this organization positively impacts my performance here at XYZ Company. I would like to request that my membership fees are considered as part of my professional development and are supported by the company. Ideally, I will be a member of both the Local and National organizations. The annual fee for complete dual membership is $429.00* (less than the cost of a single out-of-town seminar). This includes a whole year’s worth of professional development workshops with no additional costs.
