Wingate University’s small chapter reached out on campus to students from 12pm-2pm on January 12th. The Executive Officers Alexis, Hanner, Harrison, and Jessica set up a table located in the Dixon-Palmer Center to spread the word about our chapter. We were joined by the State Chair, Benjamin Waldman, who assisted us in our efforts. He provided valuable information about Young Americans for Liberty and how to help our chapter expand. Connecting with another member from a different chapter was a unique experience.
During the membership drive, many students and faculty showed interest and asked us questions. Our membership drive has resulted in 22 sign ups for the email list. Students from all grades signed up. When students signed up we offered them a free T-shirt and/or a button. Our first meeting of the Spring semester will be held on Tuesday, January 16th. We hope to see many new faces in the next meeting and that our chapter continues to grow throughout the semester!
