How We Will Get This Done
Strengthening chapter membership, increasing faculty support and recruiting local judges are all priorities when managing local chapters. Each population presents unique challenges from local advisors.
Fortunately, many advisors have created effective recruitment models and are willing to share their expertise. Join us as we discuss proven strategies, resources and tips that have lead to increase involvement amongst students, faculty and external employer partnerships.
Where do the students come from?

Students will join if they know the benefits.
CTSO’s are expanding and some of the events are not being taught in the business department.
Find out what other classes your students are taking and allow the other teachers to help. Teachers will view these as lesson plans/activities and appreciate the help.
tIncrease your AP Courses and make sure guidance is aware of your articulation credits, and all other “sellers” in your department to increase your student population.
Give teachers the information available for CTSO’s especially the competitive events. Allow them to use them as assignments.

WHAT WORKS FOR YOU?
I always communicate electronically with my students, it has helped tremendously with forms, etc.
Be honest, if you don’t know or missed a deadline inform the students. They will help next time.
