We ask that you encourage members of your affiliates to promote Lead Retrieval/Student Registration at all fairs by directing parents and students to, or By doing this, students and parents will receive a personalized barcode with their contact and academic information that they can print and bring to the fairs. When colleges and universities scan their barcode, they retrieve the information and are able to follow up with students after the fair.  This saves the time of filling out individual information cards, thus allowing your students to visit more booths during their time at the fairs.
