Win Money When You Refer Your Colleagues to ASPR
Did you know you can win money when you refer your colleagues to join ASPR? ASPR will award two member referral prizes each quarter – one prize to an ASPR member and one prize to an ASPR vendor. Winners will each receive $100.00. For every new member you refer in a quarter, you will receive one entry into the quarterly drawing. Multiple entries per quarter will be allowed if multiple referrals have been made – refer 10 new members, get entered to win 10 times!
Drawings will occur according to the following schedule:
- Referrals from January 1 to March 31 - drawing on or about April 10
- Referrals from April 1 to June 30 - drawing on or about July 10
- Referrals from July 1 to September 30 - drawing on or about October 10
- Referrals from September 1 to December 31 - drawing on or about January 10
What must you do to be entered in the quarterly drawing?
- Tell your colleagues about ASPR and encourage them to join.
- Ask your colleague to list you as the referral source on the membership application in the field "ASPR Referring Member."
Yes! It's that easy! The ASPR staff will include your name in the quarterly drawing for each new member you refer as long as your name is listed as the referral source.
Members or vendors who refer a member will only be eligible in the quarter during which the new member joins. A member or vendor is eligible to be entered multiple times for multiple referrals. Entries will be tracked quarterly and will not carry-over from one quarter to another.

Webinar Tomorrow: The Who, What, When and Why of Reporting to Administration
Don’t miss out – register now! There are only a few spots remaining for tomorrow’s webinar!
Date: September 24, 2014
Time: 10 a.m. PT / Noon CT / 1 p.m. ET
Presenters: From The Cleveland Clinic, Office of Physician Recruitment: Lauren Judd, AASPR, Department Manager, Nathan Elting, Physician Recruiter and Michael Palinchik, AASPR, Physician Recruiter
You put a lot of time and effort into filling positions, but are you getting recognized for your efforts and accomplishments? This is one of the reasons why reporting to administration is an integral part of physician recruitment. But who do you report to? What information do you report? When is the information presented and why is reporting so important? The presenters will discuss reporting tools and tactics that anyone can incorporate into their model of physician recruitment. Even if you don’t have a fancy database or tracking system, you can still create reports and present useful information to justify your role in the organization and show that you are the expert when it comes to physician recruitment. Presenters will share sample reports and also incorporate industry trends and benchmarks into the discussion to show how this information ties into what you report to administration.
Member Profile: Aisha DeBerry
Aisha DeBerry has been a member of ASPR for just over two years. She loves being able to network and collaborate with colleagues from across the United States. “I literally would not have made it my first year in academic medicine if it hadn’t been for ASPR, particularly AIR,” she says. Aisha is a FASPR and believes this distinguished certification gives her credibility with the leaders in her organization and enables her to serve as the subject matter expert on physician recruitment. She is a member of OAR and MAPRA and serves as the Member and Marketing Committee Chair of AIR.
Aisha has been in recruitment and human resources for 18 years, with more than 12 years specifically in healthcare recruitment. She currently works for Virginia Commonwealth University Health System as a physician recruiter and focuses on academic recruitment.
In addition to recruiting, Aisha has responsibility for standardizing processes, collaborating on new acquisitions and ventures, advising senior leaders on issues dealing with budgetary compliance, diversity, recruitment strategies, contract negotiations and vendor management. She also helps to develop methodology for tracking key metrics like turnover and retention.
Aisha says “Working within an organizational structure of a health system, practice plan and university can be challenging because priorities, systems and goals often differ. However, it’s exciting to be part of the number one hospital in Virginia and the Richmond metropolitan area.” She says physician recruitment is truly an adventure and loves the VCU motto “Every day is a new discovery.”
Originally from New York City, Aisha has lived in many places including California and Utah. She now calls Virginia home and resides there with her husband, John and two children, Torrance and Victoria. She enjoys trips to the spa, watching HGTV, shopping and reading self-help books – though she admits she never seems to finish them!
A singer and dancer, Aisha was fortunate to perform in the Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center twice and even performed at one of President Clinton’s inaugural balls with her dance troupe and choir.
Aisha tries to focus on the present and live in the moment but says she is still learning to do so.
