Now Available 24/7: New Member Recruiting in New Times

Posted on Jun 26 2020 - 5:17pm

Our program called New Member Recruiting in New Times is now available to you 24/7 through a link near the bottom of https://www.atlantabsa.org/recruitingresources or directly on YouTube here on the AAC YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/AACBoyScouts/videos.  This program shares tips about how we can grow Scouting in these new times.  Pack planning and promotion of Pack plans can increase parent participation and help us build Stronger Families Through Scouting.  Families may continue to be safely physically distant from others, but they will still all need Scouting.

Recruiting Step One: Make a Calendar of Fun Activities - Your Pack Program

Posted on Jun 26 2020 - 5:14pm

Cub Scouting is needed by youth and families as much as ever, if not more, and we want to share tips about steps to successful and sustainable recruiting of families into your Cub Scouting program.  A critical first step is to develop your Calendar of Fun Activities, or – especially as we continue Covid caution – your Pack program that will probably include support for parent-led activities in physically distant Cub Scouting.  Yes, we know that Cub Scouting will be different this year, but there’s many ways Packs can be flexible in dealing with necessary physical distancing and deliver a Cub Scouting program that families will want to join.  For ideas about building your Pack Program of activities, see https://www.atlantabsa.org/cubcalendarplanning.  Thoughts about What Does Cub Scouting Look Like Now? (or What Are We Asking Families to Join and Do?) can be found at https://www.atlantabsa.org/2020CubScoutRecruit, and should help you make plans for the upcoming program year, or at least the rest of 2020.

Steps to Successful Cub Scout Family Recruiting

Posted on Jun 23 2020 - 10:45am

The Pack Leader’s Guide to Recruiting describes these steps for successful recruiting, starting with:

(1) Make a Calendar of Fun Activities that families like (be the Pack they want to Join -- and we know that's harder this year, in these current Covid times, so with your leaders take a look at these ideas about What Cub Scouting Looks Like Now), then

(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, and in some units, a July signup will save $22.50 compared to an August signup after the fee increases kick in -- more on that here),

(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!
