recruitment ideas

I begin recruiting new members in the spring. After returning from State Competitions the members share their exciting experiences with their classmates. I also create a display case with members display boards and lots of pictures of competitions, fun times, the banquet and the awards. During this time I keep notes of students that are definitely interested in becoming involved.
When school starts in the fall, all classes have a short presentation about FCCLA. I often use the ppt from the state officer team. The first meeting is fun and informational. We had our first meeting today and I distributed the information about Vail. Finding roommates is a recruiting tool to "fill your room" My Chapter is off to a great start.

Recruitment Idea for FCCLA

To get FCCLA off to a good start I enjoy using our display case as a way to recruit students. This particular display case is visible to the complete student body and is passed everyday by a majority of the students. To peak their curiosity I post up in the display case about a 100 pictures of activities that our FCCLA chapter has participated in or pictures of our club members having fun. Then I completely cover the outside of the display case with black paper with holes cut in the paper so the student must press their face against the case to see the pictures inside the case. On the outside of the case I have written “Take a Peak to See What is Happening in FCCLA”.
