Top Hand Tips and Tricks


1. Don't be afraid to ask!

"Are you a current NCBA member?"
If not, ask their reasoning. If you never ask, you'll never know.

2. Always have NCBA membership materials on hand.

When talking with a potential member, have an application on hand so that they can fill one out right then. Offer to mail their completed membership application for them.

3. Get their contact information. And follow up!

Having a phone number and address makes it easier to follow up with a potential member to see if they have any additional questions. Encourage them to join if they have not done so already.

*See the recruitment materials above for resources. 

4. Use Your Community.

Is your neighbor a member? Have you asked your vet? Asking those around you ensures a common thread to get the conversation started.

5. Don't Be Afraid of the Tough Questions.

Tough Questions mean they are interetsed and listening. Read through your National Cattlemen and listen to Beltway Beef to get the latest policy updates. Then go get those boots on the ground!
