67 Ways To Meet Potential Members (Updated Free Resource)

by Matt Mattson

6-cylindersYou know by now that “You can’t recruit who you don’t know.”  So, the big question we get from fraternity men is, “How do I meet 500 people to put on our chapter’s Names List?”

Fraternities all run on a 6 cylinder engine. Each of those cylinders is a category of ideas used to “drives names onto a Names List.”  Unfortunately most chapters are only using 1 or 2 of their cylinders, thus producing very little Horsepower.

Use these ideas (each of us falls within one of the 6 cylinders categories) to build up your Names List fast!  They’re all proven.  They all work.  There are 67 of them, and you probably only need 5… so choose your favorites and execute them with excellence.
