Membership Recruitment Kit

The Membership Recruitment Kit is a method of recruiting potential Charter Members for a new Club, or to add Members to an existing Club. It involves setting up a table in a public place and handing out items to kids as a “soft-sell” approach to Member recruitment. The materials needed can easily be assembled by any Club, and are also available for purchase from Optimist International.
