District Membership Status 2018 - What can you do to move the Thermometers Higher?

It’s Not Too Late to Plan for Unit Recruitment

It's that time of year for packs, troops, crews, and teams to plan for unit recruitment. Each unit needs to reach out into the community and invite new youth members and adult leaders to join their respective units, in addition to using the council's School Night for Scouting program. There are NEW resources available to promote your next recruitment activity, new promotional resources.

Recruitment Guide and Resources

What can you do to move the Thermometers Higher?

  1. Follow Up - Now is the time to follow-up, welcome and onboard new members and parents. As kids and parents experience their first meeting(s), that first experience makes a huge difference in their decision to join Scouting. Get the new youth applications into the office, read complete article .
  2. Bring-A-Friend Event - Have your Scouts invite a non-Scout friend to a district sponsored Bring-A-Friend event, list of upcoming events.
  3. Promote your October, November, and December Pack Meetings as ADDITIONAL Join Nights - Use the newly designed invitation cards to promote your October, November, or December pack meetings. The council will do the printing for you, order invitation cards . Let us know the dates of your pack meetings and district will add them to 'Adventure Is Calling' so prospective families can see what activities are coming up in your pack! The district will also flyer the schools that we have access to. Please use this simple form.
