We got this idea from one of our UniServ field representatives. He suggested offering a drawing at rep council meetings in order to encourage attendance as well as liven up the atmosphere. The field rep suggested that at each rep council meeting, the president come prepared with a few gift cards (they don’t have to be much: $5 or so for Dunkin Donuts or WaWa would be great) or lottery tickets. During the meeting, the president raffles off the gift cards. Although the cards aren’t for much money, the members have fun during the drawing, and each drawn name is met with resounding applause.
