Recruitment Strategies

How to Recognize Council Recruiters

Every recruiter is a vital council asset and should be recognized as such. Small efforts to publicly acknowledge recruiter efforts can pay big dividends in increased recruitment activity.

  • Promote current campaign awards/incentives.

  • Recognize recruiters by awarding “Very Important Proposers” (VIP) Club certificates and lapel pins. See VIP Club flyer (#2488) for details.

  • Solicit or purchase campaign prizes for recruiters, such as:

    • tickets to athletic/social events

    • certificates for dinners, weekend get-aways

    • sports equipment, family games, etc.

  • Offer dues reduction for each new member recruited (e.g.: sponsor receives $1 rebate per recruit).

  • Initiate a “Blazer Club,” awarding jackets to members who recruit 10 or more Knights.

  • List recruiters in council bulletin, along with new recruits.

  • Acknowledge recruiters at council meetings or with a handwritten note.

  • Order Certificates of Appreciation (#1579) for recruiters and present them at a council event or meeting .

  • Ensure that the proposer lists his membership number in Section 6 of the membership application for recording at the Supreme Council. Ask the financial secretary to review documents before sending them to the Supreme Council.
