Getting Great in the Door: Creating a Legacy of Excellence

Have you ever wished your chapter had more “great” members and fewer “mediocre” members? Would your chapter be better off if it had a structured system to recruit new members instead of relying on the efforts of a few members each semester? If you are looking for a step-by-step system to easily recruit great members, you and your chapter need to hear this message.

For your organization to thrive, you must identify individuals who meet your standards and then give them a compelling reason to join your chapter. In this keynote, you will be challenged to identify what characteristics top-notch potential members possess, how you can determine if a candidate meets those standards, and then develop a specific recruitment system to engage your entire chapter in the recruitment process. You will walk out of this program prepared to increase both the quality and quantity of your membership while ultimately leaving your chapter better than you found it!

This is a perfect pre-recruitment program for IFC and/or Panhellenic audiences. In addition to his keynote, Tom is also available for a full day of chapter consultations for an additional fee.
