Recruitment is the lifeblood of KA. Without adding new members to our brotherhood, our chapters and the Order would eventually cease to exist. Remember, recruitment is not for just a few weeks, but throughout the year, and every member should be involved in the process. The following resources will help you have a successful recruitment.
Become a Certified Chapter Recruiter!
Offered every year during the Emerging Leaders Academy, the Certified Chapter Recruiter Course (CCRC) is designed to educate and motivate brothers on the core principles of recruitment.
Develop a written chapter recruitment plan
In addition to a rush schedule, a well-developed recruitment plan includes an outline of the committee structure, recruitment goals, marketing plan, etc. Success in recruitment is greatly impacted by your chapter’s planning and organization. Download the Template.
