Fall means recruitment season, and whether your formal recruitment week is in full swing or still in the planning stages, these tips will help you balance your fall event managements so your recruitment season is as stress-free as possible.
Remember The Reason For The Season Recruitment season can quickly become a stressful, competitive blur, and therefore it's easy to get caught up in little details rather than remembering why your sorority executes the event in the first place.
If you focus only on having the most creative songs or a perfectly coordinated color scheme, parties can quickly come off as superficial and your sorority's true purpose can be obscured from your potential new members.
Likely, the girls will better remember their conversations with chapter members and the causes the sorority stands for than whether or not you cheered louder than your rival sorority.
Therefore, be sure to choose decorations and themes that not only look cute, but best reflect your chapter's personality and ideals.
Recruitment banners stressing the sorority mottos, slideshows of chapter pictures from you last fundraiser, or recruitment videos detailing the sorority's philanthropy are all great ways to show the potential new members what your chapter is really about.
Expect Mishaps Though you don't want it to happen, the sorority slideshow might suddenly have a technology glitch, someone might forget their line in the senior poem, or that flower order you're still waiting on may never arrive.
Hiccups are going to happen, and there's no real way to prevent that.
You'll only stress yourself out more if you try to account for every potential mishap.
Rather, take a deep breath, enjoy the moment, embrace the chaos, and never, ever underestimate the power of caffeine.
Don't Be Afraid To Ask For Help Recruitment is a huge undertaking to pull off, and it's impossible to do alone.
Don't be afraid to delegate those tasks to your party chairs, to your committees, or to any sisters with a bit of spare time.
People are willing to help, and assisting in the event gives your sisters more of a stake in it.
If you are a bit of a control freak, don't hesitate to give thorough direction to anyone taking up a task and deadlines for when it needs to be accomplished.
