The Recruitment Challenge

The Recruitment Challenge seeks to emphasize Sigma Alpha Epsilon recruits 365 days a year. To support this effort, the Fraternity will provide a Spring Yard games set customized SAE for the Spring ’23 semester for every active collegiate chapter member, increasing its membership by 10%. There is no better time to invite deserving men to join our Order than today.

From now until March 15, 2023, the Fraternity offers an opportunity to earn a Spring ‘23 recruitment yard game for free! There are a few rules…

  • The entire process of recruiting, bidding, and initiating a new member onboarding must be completed by March 15…
  • You’ll need to make full payment of all applicable initiation fees to the Fraternity on time.
  • Chapter membership will reflect overall growth of 10% or more.

Below are just a few insights on how to find and attract new members, and links to more in-depth methods are included.

Tips on where to find potential new members from the new Recruitment Planning Guide:

1. In the classroom.

Sit in the front row, ask questions, engage with other students during group exercises, and wear SAE apparel. Show classmates that SAE brothers are leaders in the classroom. Once relationships are developed in the classroom, and potential new members (PNMs) have been identified, ask PNMs if they have ever considered joining a fraternity.

2. Campus events.

Attend campus events and contribute to the event. Listen, ask questions, be proactive in meeting new people and again wear SAE apparel. Law of Attraction: Become the member SAE would like to recruit (leader, engaging, community builder, relationship builder)

3. Social Media

Consistent posting (1 post per week) about the chapter displaying SAE values (friendship, scholarship, leadership, service.) Additionally, following PNMs on social media and sending personal messages asking about a respective PNM is a great way to build relationships. Follow different pages searching for PNMs to build a recruitment list (ex. Class of 2026,2027 at (school name), (school name) Activities Council, (school name) Writing/Psychology/Art/Business/Engineering clubs)

4. Friends Network.

Have SAE members go through their social media pages and phone contacts, messaging friends about the opportunity to join the fraternity. Most students never join a fraternity because they are never asked. Take the time to ask friends about joining.
