Inviting sending leads to AFS events and activities in your area (such as potlucks, hosted student activities or an Info Session) is an easy way to encourage students and their parents to learn more about AFS and become part of the AFS community. Even if they do not attend the event or go abroad, it will help them realize what a robust AFS community we have, and they may support AFS in a different capacity by hosting a student, recommending AFS to a friend, or by becoming an AFS volunteer. So please keep inviting sending leads (and applicants!) to AFS events and activities.
Please use the instructions under Find Sending Leads to pull up a list of sending leads in your area. A quick way to invite all leads to an event or activity is to pull up the leads in Sending Lead Management, and click on the boxes next to the students' names and select the Bulk Email option like this:
A window regarding Subscriber Alerts will open and then the AFS email composer will appear so that you can type and send your invitation. A copy of your email will automatically record in the student's contact log for future reference.
