Recruitment: Don't Panic, It's Time to Be Dynamic!

What Is Dynamic Recruitment?

Representing Our Authentic Selves

Utilizing Existing Events

 
 

For some campuses, the formal recruitment period is coming to an end, just getting started or being planned for the start of next semester. However, the timing of our formal recruitment period should not matter if we want to reach peak success in recruitment. If we want the best possible results in recruitment we need to focus on being dynamic. 

Dynamic Recruitment is a topic consistently brought up by campus administration and headquarters. While it is a great idea, we don't always talk about how to actually apply it. This recruitment update is intended to help you start coming up with ideas on being truly dynamic with your recruitment.

 What Is Dynamic Recruitment?

If you've heard anyone talk about dynamic recruitment, then you know it's basis is recruiting 365 days a year, and at the simplest form that is correct. Dynamic Recruitment is an active approach to building meaningful relationship with non-Greek students through an intentional and strategic process. Utilizing small, normal friendship building activities, over large recruitment events, is a key to successful Dynamic Recruitment.

Representing Our Authentic Selves
Tampa.RU  

We should always work to be authentic and represent ourselves to the best of our ability. However, it is easy to fall into a trap to act how we think potential members want us to act. This negatively impacts not just the formal recruitment period, but outside of that as well. 

As a chapter, representing your authentic self, and showing that to the rest of campus, will attract like-minded new members. Use that to your advantage! Bring your authentic selves, and your events, onto campus and promote the correlation. Wear your Fiji shirts to a brotherhood basketball tournament at the gym. Set-up an information table next to your philanthropy table. 

Help others build their own correlation between your authentic values based organization and membership.

Utilizing Existing Events
Cal.RU  

Every chapter and colony has recruitment events squished into an IFC mandated period. And while these events are great and have a particular way to be run, those aren't the only events we have as a fraternity. Any events we have can be a recruitment event! There is nothing stopping us from inviting non-Greek men to come to brotherhood events, community service events, philanthropy events, or any other events. If we can get potential members feeling welcomed into our organization before the recruitment period even starts, then getting them through the process and to a bid vote is even easier!

If you questions about developing your chapter or colony's recruitment model to be more dynamic, check out the Phi Gamma Delta Recruitment Manual, ask your field secretary, or call headquarters! 

Fraternally,

Nick Hawley - Director of Growth
