Recruit a Warrior.

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: Membership is the lifeblood of DAV. Membership helps DAV's services and programs flourish in our local communities and helps DAV fight on Capitol Hill for impactful change to improve the lives of veterans and their families.

Bringing new members into our organization is critical to the success of our mission. We work hard each day to find new and innovative ways to help our recruiters in the field. The less time we spend on signing up a veteran means more time for finding potential new members.

Our most recent recruitment initiative--and one we're excited to introduce--is the Recruit a Warrior program. This program is designed to help our members reach as many veterans as possible with just a few clicks of a mouse.

To participate, all you have to do is follow these two simple steps:

1. Enter your email address at dav.org/warrior to receive your personalized referral link.

2. Share your referral link with fellow warriors of your choice. This link is unique to you and will automatically track how many new members you've recruited.

We also like to reward all of our members who work to grow our membership base. So until Nov. 30, 2019, we're running the Recruit a Warrior Challenge. Each new member recruited with your unique referral link not only will earn you classic recruiter points but will also provide you with an entry into a drawing for a chance to win $1,000. If you recruit five new members, then you will have five entries in the drawing.

New members must pay for their membership, either in full or monthly, to count toward a drawing entry. Free membership sign-ups, for those over 80, will not be included in a current member's recruitment total.

Even though the challenge ends Nov. 30, the Recruit a Warrior program will remain active as a constant way to grow our community into 2020 and beyond. You can (and should) continue sharing your personal Recruit a Warrior link to recruit others and continue earning recruiter points. Additionally, each new members who join our community will receive their own personalized Recruit a Warrior referral link, so that they, too, can participate in growing our ranks through the program.

As a DAV member, you know the power and value of our network. We've seen from experience that when we stay engaged and offer new programs and tools to our members, we receive a phenomenal response. We know you want to share DAV's mission and message of hope with as many as you can. Our new Recruit a Warrior program is an outstanding way to do that.
