Recruiting Step Five: Sign Up Events: Not just School Sign Up Night ... do Fun Events Too!

Posted on Aug 4 2015 - 2:45pm

There are Two Key Elements of any Sign-Up Event:  (1) Fun and (2) sharing Pack Information.  In August, plan for two kinds of Sign-Up Events:  (1) first, one or more School Sign Up Nights (your District Professionals will work with you to schedule these for August -- but you've got to decide what kind of Fun for Families you'll have), and/or (2) right after that, a Pack Fun Event where you can also share Pack Information with Adults (doesn't have to be a "Pack Meeting" ... a "Pack Party", or Picnic, or swim party, or fishing derby, or climbing gym, or Six Flags, or bike rodeo ... what do you like to do?).  Waiting on the District Professional to schedule a School Sign Up Night?  Go ahead with a Fun Event now and invite away!  Don't Wait for them! Please do both kinds of events -- if you just have a school night, and not a pack super fun event, it will be harder to bring in new families.  See more in the Leader’s Guide to Recruiting.  To help you when you pitch your Pack, we have a streamlined Sign Up Event Script geared to the start of the program year and a PowerPoint to Pitch Your Pack to Parents … see the wrap up steps next ...

New Den Leader Guides Now Online

Posted on Jul 28 2015 - 3:19pm

The new Den Leader Guide material is available online to make it easier for leaders and parents to deliver the program.  Our Cub Scout Meeting Plans page gives you some guidance about those plans, and is starting to develop other resources like Den Meeting Plans for Mixed Dens (adapted from those official Guides so that when your start-up 6 kid den of 3 Tigers and 3 Wolves turns into 14 kids, 7 at each rank, you can seamlessly split and stay "in the leader guides").
