Take advantage of intra-campus mail. Put an eye-catching notice of the meeting in boxes. Send E-mail to education majors on campus, or post information on an electronic bulletin board.

Have student leaders stand at the doors of the education building during the first week of classes asking the question, 'Have you joined the New Jersey Student Education Association yet?"

At any function for education majors, give out information and enrollment forms. Be sure to tell them about discounts and special services to members.

Stuff membership packets with "freebies." Contact local pizza parlors and fast food restaurants for discount coupons; collect pencils, key chains, and tablets from local banks, insurance agencies, and other businesses and then give them to members as they join.

Target secondary and special education students. NJSEA is not just for elementary educators.

Invite prospective members to the first meeting and talk informally about the organization. Display the chapter scrapbook and serve refreshments at the close of the meeting.

Saturate the campus with information-put notes in mailboxes, have officers visit classes to make announcements, target dorms, and have an exciting first meeting.

I got this idea from a student organizer in another state. The other state calls this "ScareFest." It looks something like this:

The student association invites former members to return during the month of October to share their challenges and successes as first-year teachers. The event emphasizes sharing tips and advice, one of which is always, "ask for help among your peers."
