It’s coming soon! The first-ever book on SORORITY RECRUITMENT!
About 15 months ago, Josh Orendi and I (Matt Mattson) launched the revolutionary book, Good Guys: The Eight Steps to Limitless Possibilities for Fraternity Recruitment. Now, after a lot of hard work by Phired Up’s two sorority recruitment experts, the company is proud to announce that we’re preparing to launch a similar (but unique) book for sororities.
The truth is that, while many of the core concepts are similar, sororities recruit differently than fraternities, and up until now, there hasn’t been a universal international resource for undergraduate and alumnae sorority leaders to turn to for instruction on the most vital of their organizational responsibilities — recruitment. Thanks to Colleen Coffey, Jessica Gendron (the authors), and countless other Greek leaders, Phired Up Productions is in the final stages of preparation for the launch of that very resource.
The book will be called, I Heart Recruitment: The Eight Steps to Limitless Possibilities for Sororities. Colleen and Jessica have been buried in the edits and drafts over the past several months, and their thrilled to be ready to talk about the book publicly.
An official release will be available once the book is actually launched, and we’re still about 1 month away from publication, but start thinking now about how you can incorporate this incredible new resource for sororities into your educational repertoire. We recommend that you let all the sorority women you know in on this super secret pre-announcement so that they’re prepared to get this book a.s.a.p. This will dramatically influence recruitment practices around the country this year, so be sure you don’t miss the initial wave of excitement.
Consider sending Jessica and Colleen an E-mail at IHeartRecruitment@PhiredUp.com to learn more about the book.
