Luther College in Decorah, Iowa held its first recruitment drive. We have gained a little recognition on campus and got some students interested. For our first drive, we talked politics to see where we all agree and disagree. Then we talked about what principles YAL supports and if they were receptive then we asked them to join. We made it clear that while preferred, they do not have to be dues paying members so that they are more likely to join.
We began by setting up tables in high traffic areas on campus. We handed out pamphlets and talked to people about YAL. It was a great experience and the drive seemed to make many people hear our ideas.Published in
