The RPEC Executive Board approved a proposal from the Membership Committee to revamp our membership recruitment incentive program and to create a year-end membership recruitment drive to encourage members to bring new folks into the organization.
Beginning September 1st, for each new dues-paying member recruited by an RPEC member, a ticket will be added – in the recruiter’s name – to a drawing for the cash prize of $84 (equal to a year of membership dues). Members recruited through December 31, 2019 will count toward the prize drawing. The prize winner will be announced in early January.
Beginning January 1, 2020, the long-standing membership recruitment incentive program “Gimme 5” will be established as an annual program for the year ending December 31, 2020 and beyond. RPEC members who recruit five or more new dues-paying members during any calendar year will promptly receive $100 as well as recognition in the RPEC newsletter and at the next RPEC Convention.
Chapter leaders are encouraged to help their members participate in the membership recruitment drive by having membership applications and other materials available at chapter meetings. Please contact the council office if you need additional materials.
