Membership Development and Recruitment: The Membership Development and Recruitment (MDR) Committee is responsible for bringing in new members, training them, and keeping a high level of dedication, education, and interest throughout the year. Specifically, they run all recruitment related events (Involvement Fair, speaking in classes, breakout sessions), the recruitment process (applications, interviews), volunteer training (orientation program, follow up training sessions), and continued education (speakers, poverty simulations). They strive to make the new volunteer process as accessible and efficient as possible, and promote continued passion and dedication for the cause.
