If you’re part of a student or professional group and trying to extend the reach of your local group, consider running a large speaker event. Local groups often use large speaker events to springboard future engagement, following them with, for instance, a more intimate introduction to EA discussion group. This is a particularly good event to advertise at a student activities fair.

Generally these events feature a keynote speaker who is attractive to a large local audience — a famous campus professor, local public figure, or professional in your field — while being relevant to EA in some way. Groups often start the event with an introduction-to-EA talk; the Centre for Effective Altruism offers to fly one of its team members out to give this talk and help with event curation.
