Recruiter's Reception

As many of you may know, Sons of Norway held a recruitment contest this summer where any member who recruited a new, dues-paying member between June 28th and August 28th received an invite to a private recruiter's reception at the International Convention. Last night was the big even and there was a great turnout. We hosted nearly 90 members who had recruited more than 14o members during the two month contest!

During the reception members ate and drank together, sharing recruiting stories and their pride in belonging to Sons of Norway. Then, towards the end of the night there were some contests for who had recruited the most members and who had re recruited a new member from the furthest distance away.

Elaine Nelson, our D4 International Director won a hand carved bunad figurine for signing up 12 new members in less than 2 months! Also, it should be noted that D1 President, Bob Hoover recruited 11 new members in the same time period. This is a great example of what a recruiter can accomplish when he or she puts their mind to it! Congrats to Elaine and Bob!

I also think it's good to point out that it wasn't just members who were our star recruiters. Take a look at the photo above and you'll see a whole table full of Sons of Norway Financial Benefits Counselors who recruited new members for the organization. This is a great example of everyone pitching in to help Sons of Norway grow as an organization.

Overall, it was a great night for everyone in attendance and we hope to host more programs like this in the future!
