Winter Term Membership Drive
Message from VP of Recruiting

Again I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new HRMA members!

With winter term kicking off, I need your help spreading the word about our student organization. I encourage all members to reach out to their classmates the first month of winter term -- don't forget, the Fall Membership Special has been extended through the end of January. If you are looking to increase your involvement with HRMA, this is a great opportunity since it only takes five minutes of your time.

If interested, contact me at
I can provide you with fliers and a talking points cheat sheet prior to you making any in-class announcements.

Fall term was a real success as we welcomed close to 40 new members. Let's continue this momentum in the new year.
