What is our 8,000 Ambassadors Campaign?
As part of our 2020 Vision, we plan to expand the number of DFW chapters. This year, we want to add 96 new chapters across the U.S. The first phase of our chapter growth strategy is to harness the collective power of our members to spread the word about DFW -- that’s 8,000 ambassadors sharing their passion for DFW and helping us to grow!
What is happening on March 8?
March 8 is International Women’s Day, a great day to launch our 8,000 Ambassadors Campaign with the biggest DFW chapter meeting ever. We have invited all our chapters across the country to meet on March 8th in recognition of International Women’s Day and to join DFW’s live webcast. The details are:
When: Live webcast begins at 8:00 pm EST and will last until about 8:20 pm EST.
How: A simple link will be shared in the March issue of The Dish and on the homepage of our website. You will be able to join ahead of time so you are all ready to go!
What: A nation-wide, joint chapter meting, where we will say the Dinner Affirmation all across the country together, watch the featured grantee video, and hear from a special guest with a connection to our featured grantee. We will also have an exciting announcement that you won't want to miss!
If your chapter is unable to meet on March 8, please encourage your members to join the live webcast at home or on their phone. The webcast will also be recorded for on-demand viewing.
How can my chapter help DFW grow?
We ask you to brainstorm and plan with your chapter members how you can spread the word about DFW. We are mailing each chapter an Ambassador Toolbox with resource materials, including DFW rack cards and brochures, as well as a list of simple suggestions to help us grow. If each chapter member picks three actions from this list, we will meet our goal of 96 new chapters this year! Watch for this toolbox in late February. There will be one package sent to the primary Chapter Leader in each chapter.
Make some news
Many news media outlets will be looking for local stories to cover for International Women’s Day – it’s a great time to let them know about DFW and your local chapter. We have an easy-to-use press release template for you, along with tips for getting media coverage about DFW.
Tell us about your actions and results
We want to hear about the actions your chapter members take to to grow DFW and how they turned out. By sharing our successes, we can learn from each other. Be sure to let our Regional Leader know and email firstname.lastname@example.org.
