IEEE Recruiting and Retention Elevator Pitch for Membership

Greetings to all MD volunteers,

We are pleased to announce the details of the "MD Elevator Pitch Contest" and are encouraging recruitment and retention by personal outreach and contact. This provides everyone an opportunity to showcase their best approaches.

Contest – IEEE Recruiting and Retention Elevator Pitch for Membership

Objective: to create an interaction about IEEE

Goal: after interaction, the non-member joins or the member renews

We are looking for ideas for a "personal approach" to recruit and retain members. This concept is similar to the approach used in networking with the objective to engage the other person(s) in a dialogue about IEEE and how IEEE can be of benefit for them. Through this conversation, they will see a reason or benefit why they should become a member of IEEE.

To enter, create a 30-second and/or 1-minute "approach" about joining (new) or staying (renewal) in IEEE. (Up to a total of 4 approaches per active member.)

The best approach(es) will win a prize (4 prizes total – 2 Retention, 2 Recruitment). Prizes consist of solar powered charger and light-up mini mouse, two (2) of each item for total of four (4) prizes given out.

Enter by submitting your approach(es) in the online form found at:

Submission Rules:

  • Entrants must be an IEEE member in active status
  • Only one form submittal per IEEE member
  • Submittal can contain up to four (4) approaches
  • Submittal must be via the online form within form text limits
  • Deadline for submittals is Thursday, 17 April 2014, 12:00 PM Eastern
  • Selection process will be handled by Volunteers and Staff
  • All submissions become property of IEEE and may be used by anyone in IEEE for MD purposes
  • Prizes will be offered to up to four (4) members based on submittals received. One (1) prize per member

The announcement of top selections will be made at the May 2014 MD Webcast.

Looking forward to some great approaches!
