IF YOU WERE TO RECRUIT A FRIEND OR COLLEAGUE TO SUPPORT BRC, WHAT REASON WOULD YOU GIVE FOR WHY THEY SHOULD JOIN?
I would tell them that BRC is a great place whether you are simply looking for a short term assignment during the holidays or if you are looking to engage more with the organization. There are all levels of support you can offer depending on what it is you are looking for; everyone at BRC makes you feel welcomed!
