The Kent Student YAL chapter was in decline. All the tabling, flyering, and free-road-tripping in the world didn’t seem like it was making any difference in growing liberty on Kent State’s campus. After the monotony started to gnaw on the leadership’s morale, attendance by the executive board itself became more shoddy: more sicknesses, more homework that had to be finished Tuesday night, you name it. It became pretty obvious that we had to not only wipe the slate clean, but probably also invest in a whole new metaphorical slate.
I took a lot advice in from leadership within the liberty community to get our chapter off life support. After a lot of nights over brews/dinner and planning, our executive board put together a tentative action plan that, so far, has brought us back on the map. Last Wednesday, we celebrated having the largest and most involved meeting we’ve had in the history of kick-off meetings. Special thanks to: Kristen Hirter, Katrina Darst, Corey Moore, Megan Jennings, and pizza.
This is pretty much everything we did differently to get our group off the ground and stay off the ground.
