Free Phired Up Education: Phired Up Fridays May 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th

Phired Up & TechniPhi are excited to announce that Phired Up Fridays are back in May! These completely free Phired Up education sessions have been so incredibly well received that the company is bringing them back!

No registration is necessary, but to indicate interest and get more information, please complete this form: https://tinyurl.com/PhiredUpFriday

Still free. Still competely open to all students, volunteers, and professionals. Still focused on the growth-related needs that are facing fraternities and sororities in this unique moment.

During this Coronavirus/COVID-19 “social distancing” period, Phired Up knows that fraternity/sorority members will continue to desire engaging education about how to grow their organizations. This is one small way we can help members, volunteers, and fraternity/sorority professionals do something that feels normal and productive. 

“Even if you’re not physically at college, now is still the time to make plans for marketing and recruitment,” said Matt Mattson, Phired Up’s co-founder and President in the initial announcement. “Not to mention the importance of learning smart ways to engage your brothers and sisters digitally.” Mattson reinforced the importance of this initiative as it was extended, “We have to act now to prepare for a fall that will be very different than what we’re used to. It is important that we have our people, plans, and preparation in place to help students find fraternities and sororities in the upcoming school year.”

Empty Beds. Recruitment in Fall 2020: A Special Conversation Involving Housing Corporations
Empty beds is a problem! Filling the house is on your mind. It has to be. We were already battling enrollment declines, rising costs of higher education and insurance premiums, negative media, and changing needs of GenZ students. Then, COVID-19 happened. Join us to hear what House Corporations across the country are doing to get ahead of recruitment and grow in this environment. Learn how they’re “scenario planning,” supporting virtual recruitment, influencing council decisions, and how your chapter can maximize membership that values living-in during uncertain times. Spoiler Alert: You can’t do the same thing you did in 2019! Come with questions. The membership growth experts at Phired Up will field attendee questions as well. - May 29th, 1:00pm Eastern Daylight Time | Participation Link: https://www.anymeeting.com/772-776-490Meeting Code: 772-776-490 | Hosted by Josh Orendi
