New Member Recruitment e-Mails

The following are some possible e-mails that members can use in the first two quarters of 2010 to encourage other organizations to become members of the Alliance:


GENERAL “BLAST e-MAIL”

E-mail header: Please consider joining the Alliance for a Stronger FDA

Friends:

Since January 2008, [insert name of your organization] has been a proud member of the Alliance for a Stronger FDA, but you may not even be aware of this organization and its objectives, which is a pity.

The Alliance for a Stronger FDA is committed to two simple things: (a) assuring that the FDA has sufficient resources to protect patients and consumers and (b) maintaining public confidence and trust in the agency.

We all know that the FDA has been chronically underfunded. And we all know that the range and scope of its responsibilities has been increasing. For the FDA to effectively achieve its mission, it needs significant increases in its annual Congressional appropriation. Just to give you some context, for FY2010, the FDA’s annual appropriation will, for the very first time, finally be larger than the budget of the school district in Montgomery County, Maryland, where the FDA has is headquarters!

The Alliance for a Stronger FDA has been a pivotal force in helping to increase the FDA’s appropriation by 50% over 4 years — from $1.57 billion in FY2006 to $2.35 for FY2010. However, we need YOUR HELP to increase that appropriation again in FY2011.

Look at the Alliance web site at www.StrengthenFDA.org. Read about why YOUR organization should join the Alliance (at www.StrengthenFDA.org/members/why-should-you-join-the-alliance/). Give me a call directly if you want more information. But please consider this request seriously. Joining the Alliance is more than just good business. It makes good sense too … because a strong FDA is good for America!

I am e-mailing you today to ask your organization to become a member of the Alliance.

FOR COMMERCIAL INDUSTRY COLLEAGUES

E-mail header: It’s time to do the right thing

Over the years, every regulated company has had its “run-ins” with the FDA. And over the years we have all known what it’s like to meet our work obligations with limited financial resources, too. It’s hard, it’s tiring, and it wears on the nerves!

The FDA has been trying to meet its work obligations on a limited budget for years! Since January 2008, the Alliance for a Stronger FDA has been the one organization dedicated to seeking annual increases in the Congressional appropriation for the FDA — so that it has the resources to do its job as well as possible. [Insert name of your company, e.g., Kraft or Pfizer] has been a long-time member of the Alliance. We would like to see more industry colleagues join us in support of the Alliance’s mission. So I am e-mailing you today to ask your organization to become a member.
