University of the Cumberlands’ chapter of Young Americans for Liberty hosted their Spring Membership Drive this Tuesday, February 7. This time the club specifically requested tabling set up in the Bennett Building: home of UC’s Missions & Ministry and English departments as well as–more notably–the school’s History and Political Science departments. The group had spent most of their time in the student campus center during the Fall semester, and was eager to put on a more targeted face for the Spring. The group tabled in the lobby of the small building, engaging many students. Adding to this effort, YAL approached a professor that granted them time at the beginning of his Political Science class to pass out Constitutions and literature, as well as speak to the students directly about the importance of the club.
UC YAL had considerable success finding a new portion of students who, for one reason or another, had completely missed the activists’ considerable presence the previous semester! The chapter gained 20 brand new contact sign-ups as well as had truly meaningful engagements with several students anticipated to be major players for the rest of the year! On top of the numbers gained, younger club members were able to hone their skills in engaging people with the message of Liberty. The new contacts combined with the veteran experience made this Spring’s Membership Drive a perfect launching point for the rest of the year.
