COMMITTEE REPORTS
12
Recruitment Subcommittee Recruitment
Support for Fall 2008 MACRAO Events
  • Chris Conklin

13
IAB MACRAO Participation
  • We participated again this year in the 2008 Fall
    MACRAO events.
  • MACRAO calendar was updated in mid-summer.
  • LSSU Admissions office continues to work with the
    IAB.
  • LSSU Admissions counselors are very appreciative
    of our participation.

14
Thoughts/Sharing
  • MACRAO events are well organized and the students
    and parents look forward to attending these
    events to help in deciding career and education
    choices.
  • MACRAO events were focused more regionally this
    year. In the central Michigan area all of our
    events were concentrated into the same week, this
    kept us busy.

15
Thoughts/Sharing
  • The events are held in high schools and
    universities. The space/area utilized varies
    significantly from event to event. The events are
    held in gymnasiums, hallways, cafeterias, or a
    commons. Some of these areas have low ceilings,
    hard surfaces, and are cramped. Other areas are
    large open areas and are able to better handle
    the crowds that attend these events.

16
Thoughts/Sharing
  • Table top space is too limited for the amount of
    recruiting materials utilized. Typical table top
    is 60x 30.
  • Some of the events were poorly attended this
    season with little or no inquiries from the
    attendees.
  • Recruiting brochures had not been received by the
    admissions counselors prior to the events.

17
Thoughts/Sharing
  • Significant interest in Nursing and Health Care
    related fields.
  • Lower interest in Engineering, possible lack of
    awareness or other?
  • None of the admissions counselors had any of the
    recruitment CDs from the Engineering and
    Technology department.

in closing
  • We all enjoy supporting these events, it is a
    rewarding experience to be able to provide
    information that may be used in a students
    decision making process for their educational and
    career choices.
  • The Spring 2009 MACRAO events are coming up after
    the beginning of the new year. I will again post
    an email soliciting your support.

19
THANK YOU
  • A special THANK YOU to all of the IAB membership
    that supported the Fall 2008 MACRAO events. Your
    support is greatly appreciated and I hope that we
    can have more of the membership participate in
    future events.
  • You can make a difference in the lives of these
    young people as they make their education and
    career choices.
