How Is Your Unit Doing ... How Can We Help?

Posted on Feb 19 2017 - 12:20pm

One way to Help Units in our District is through these Troop and Pack Unit Service Plan tools (or use this SurveyMonkey Service Plan for Troops, and this SurveyMonkey Service Plan for Packs, with the same questions), adapted from the versions at my.scouting.org to include helpful resources as you review how your Unit is doing.  If you use these Troop and Pack Unit Service Plan tools, feel free to submit to your commissioner or the District Commissioner for a discussion and recognition of how you're doing!

"Recognition for Advancement is an essential part of Scouting. Set a date for your Troop's Spring Court of Honor or your Pack's Blue and Gold Banquet today, so that parents have it on their calendar and you can have a great program planned. These events are a great opportunity to engage parents who want to get more involved. Get it on the calendar this week, and let Brandon or Zach know so we can join you." -Zach Fisher, District Executive, Southern Crescent (W 770.989.2871 | C 404.245.1054, and zfisher@atlantabsa.org
