The Member-Get-a-Member program encourages SIAM members to invite their colleagues to join SIAM. This past year, 88 members referred 90 colleagues who joined SIAM as a result. For every newly referred member, both the person making the referral and the new member were entered into a drawing to win a prize. Congratulations to the following people, whose names were randomly selected on February 2, 2015, from all who were eligible. (Each member who made a successful referral will also receive a SIAM t-shirt.)
William Kath of Northwestern University won an iPad. Kath referred his colleague Aushra Abouzeid, who joined SIAM as a result.
Brent Nelson of Northeastern University won a free year of SIAM membership. He referred his colleague Yang-Hui He of the City University, London, who joined SIAM as a result.
New member Sukhdev Singh of Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar Punjab, India, won a free registration to the SIAM conference of his choice. He joined SIAM after being referred by his colleague, SIAM member Dilbaj Singh.
New member August Johansson of Simula Research Laboratory in Oslo, Norway, won a free SIAM book of his choice. He joined SIAM after being referred by his colleague, SIAM member Anders Logg.
