Setting up local meetings or seminars to recruit PSAs and PRMs need a thorough planning and strategies in order to run them successfully. Both need different approaches. A meeting can be between 2 people and a comfortable number of 10 people where you can pay individual attention to every one in a given period of time. A seminar can be a group of 20, 30 or even more than 100 people.
