This does, in a way, bring in more cooks. Although KCBS isn't bringing in people off their couch they are increasing membership.
or offer organizers incentives to increase membership by offering them a discounted or recruiter rate to sign people up. The NRA does this for its recruiters and I believe so do numerous veterans organizations. Once again, this is not necessarily going to recruit new cooks but will increase membership.
I think the best way to recruit new people is to provide excellent service and have a clear cut benefit to being a member.
