In which I learn something

So, I spent Friday evening and most of the day Saturday at United Campus Workers Organizing (recruiting) Training. And I learned something.

It's not sufficient to say, "Hey, you know, I'm a member of UCW and we have done all this cool stuff and it's a great group." It is necessary to continue and add, "Will you join us?"

I am not being sarcastic. Swear to ghu, that had never, ever occurred to me.

I wish I'd known this a year ago; it would have been really helpful for recruiting for IAAP. Oh well. I think I'll ask our incoming President if she'd like me to ask Tom and Cameron to do a session on recruiting. Not for a regular meeting, mind you, because we couldn't get recertification points for it, but a special training.
