Freshman Orientation-Attend all freshman and transfer orientation sessions and speak briefly about the NJSEA. Make arrangements to allow the NJSEA members to serve as campus guides. Members recruited as freshman can give four years of continued support to your local chapter.

Obtain a computer list of education majors and:
  • write a letter to each education major from the president and advisor of the chapter welcoming them to the campus and inviting them to join.

  • telephone each one telling them you hope he/she will join. use the 'one-on-one" approach.

  • use a buddy system-each member is assigned a freshman to contact and encourage to join.

Contact each education faculty member and encourage help in recruiting membership. Ask if someone can speak to their classes about the NJSEA

It is important to let students know about the student program as soon as possible. Some chapters have successfully tried the following with freshman:

  • During registration, set up information booths, show a slide presentation, distribute a frosh orientation help guide.

  • Big Brother/Big Sister for freshman.

  • Special parties for newcomers-ice cream socials, pizza, and the like.

Bulletin board displays or flyers. This may spark interest among members and non-members. Campus programs on hot topics-include membership promotion at closure.

Membership events, such as meetings featuring guest speakers. Have each member bring one potential member. A few days later contact each potential member about joining.

Arrange for a local, state, or national association leader to visit education classes. During the visit, set up a membership table in the education building. Have a "bring a friend" meeting.

Set up displays in the student center, cafeteria or education department. Let everyone know what the NJSEA is about!
