Recruiting Chapter Leaders

  • Identify the most involved and interested people in your chapter.
  • Timing is important – Recruit enthusiastic members for leadership positions within the chapter.
  • Look to those who consistently attend meetings.
  • Look to your board of directors for future chapter officers.
  • Give new members responsibility. Rotation is important–“new blood” brings energy into the chapter.
  • Integrate new members into committees and work them up through the leadership structure of the chapter.
  • Don’t overlook Associate members. Associates want the chapter to thrive just as much as Regular members.
  • Ask-opportunities are often lost just because someone didn’t ask.
