From Field Director Faye Hammonds:  Parents, Leaders and Community Partners:  You have an amazing opportunity to participate in the event that will kick-off the National Annual Meeting that will be held in Atlanta.  The National Meeting will be during the week of May 18 to 22.  The Atlanta Area Council would like to invite you (and Boy Scouts and Webelos ...

We are excited to be able to offer this unique opportunity to our scouts and the community and look forward to seeing you there.   View the trailer at www.bsamuddylions.org.  More on the attached flyer.

Recruiting Step One: Start a Calendar of Fun Activities

Posted on Apr 13 2015 - 12:07pm

Many more parents and boys will want to join a Unit that says “here’s our plan for fun activities … join us”  -- they do not want to join a unit that says "uh, we don't know what we'll do yet, but will some meetings to talk about it".  For Packs, it's super easy this spring: be sure to promote Twilight Camp and Cub Scout Summer Camp even if you (as a Pack Leader) can't attend ... families can attend on their own.  

Recruiting Step Two: Start to Recruit Some Leaders and Helpers

Posted on Apr 13 2015 - 12:07pm

One of the easiest ways to recruit new leaders is to (1) find out what the parents like to do, and (2) ask them to help do that activity!  As you start a calendar of activities, be sure to check in with current leaders and parents and new interested parents … get their ideas, find out what they liked, what they want to do next year.  

Recruiting Step Three: Shout it Out! Let Families know your Pack Event Plan!

Posted on Apr 13 2015 - 12:07pm

Let your families know your calendar of fun activities (don't worry if you don't have every date organized yet) ... and let current and new families and friends know ... Advertise your Activities and Promote your Pack.   Flyers, emails, posters, facebook, calls, PTA, Car Pool ...
