Values-based recruitment and membership selection is important to DU. At Recruitment Symposium, we teach chapters best practices for recruitment.

About Recruitment Symposium

The Recruitment Symposium is an officer training program for DU’s chapter Vice Presidents of Membership Recruitment. Participants learn recruitment models, best practices and soft skills to help them lead a successful values-based recruitment and selection process within their chapters.

Recruitment Symposium 2021

Recruitment Symposium is held in conjunction with the Regional Leadership Academy. Each RLA has a Recruitment Symposium track. Each chapter/associate chapter is expected to have at least one member (ideally the VP Recruitment) attend the Recruitment Symposium.

The 2021 Recruitment Symposium and RLA will be held virtually. You and your chapter can choose between one of two weekends to attend: Feb 6-7 or Feb. 13-14, 2021. You will register for the Recruitment Symposium as part of RLA registration.
