Create a Member Nomination function for invite-only memberships
As an invite-only organisation, rather than having members apply, we would prefer to have current members nominate new ones. This would mean an Application within the site using different language - e.g. Nominee's email, Nominee's name, Person Nominating, reason, etc.

We have a nomination process whereby new members are proposed and have to be seconded by two other members with letters of support. Because we have more applications than spaces, successful nominations are put into a pool and drawn out at random each year, depending on the spaces available. Nominations (identified by the year of nomination, have a maximum of six ballots before they are taken out of the pool and are no longer eligible to become members. It would be great if the system could support this process online by allowing an existing member to nominate, and two or more others to submit 'letters' of support

I agree with this request 100%. It can't happen soon enough for my organization. We are happy to be the beta testers.
If there are any suggestions on how to address in the interim, please do share.
Makes sense - cool idea! Thanks for elaborating Peter.

Hi Frank - we are building a professional membership for our industry. Unlike LinkedIn, we want it to be just our trusted contacts, which means we want to nominate and invite people, not allow them to apply themselves. We can create a Google docs form for this, but would be much better to have a member nomination feature within the software.
