Youth & College Division 10th Annual NAACP College Chapter “Move-In-Movement”
Posted on August 16, 2011
WE INVITE YOUR COLLEGE CHAPTER TO JOIN IN THIS EXCITING
2011 BACK-TO-SCHOOL INITIATIVE!
HOW IT WORKS: During your college or universities’ fall semester move-in days, your chapter will form a “Welcome Team” of at least five chapter members to provide information about your chapter to encourage membership in the NAACP and to register voters. The “Move-In Movement” should be visible in high traffic areas around the campus, dormitories, cafeterias, the library, and any other highly populated area where students are available. Activities should occur during as many move-in days as possible.
MATERIALS: The NAACP Youth & College Division and Membership Department will provide each chapter that commits to the “Move-In Movement” with NAACP paraphernalia, pledge sheets, and membership applications, etc.
** Only units that complete and return the Commitment Form at least ten (10) days prior to their move-in days will be provided with materials.
