(2) Let People Know – Promote Your Fun Events! (share with your families, and encourage them to share with their friends -- by using BeAScout and Online Registration, they can sign up right now),

(3) Recruit More Leaders and Helpers (do this throughout your recruiting process - yes, recruiting is hard, but that page has many ideas about ways to approach leader recruiting),

(4) Grow your School and Community Presence so that you're known beyond current Pack families and have strong school relations,

leading to (5) Sign-Up Events: not just the "School Sign-Up Night" scheduled by the District Professional and run by the District Professional and Pack Leaders, but also Fun Joining Events that you create!
