Six Steps for Sustainable Recruiting for your Unit

Posted on Nov 6 2016 - 5:22pm

Here’s six steps to a successful and sustainable plan for recruiting new families into your Cub Scout Pack … because every Pack wants more active leaders, and just about every Pack wants more youth and their families to join.  Key idea:  successful and sustainable recruiting happens by action now by leaders and parents in the Unit.  If your recruiting plan begins and ends on Sign Up Night, your recruiting will likely not be sustainable.  To help with recruiting by leaders and parents (hey, parents want more leaders too!), follow these Six Steps to Successful and Sustainable Recruiting from our Recruiting Tools page and in the Leader’s Guide to Recruiting:

TASCO Team Looking for a Senior Patrol Leader

Posted on Oct 31 2016 - 9:02am

From Jerry Martin, the TASCO Committee Chair: "TASCO = The Adult Southern Crescent Outing.  

Anthony Fowler, TASCO Scoutmaster, has asked for help securing someone to be the TASCO Senior Patrol Leader for 2017 (they would automatically become the 2018 TASCO Scoutmaster).  To date, he has been unable to find anyone.  If you would like to serve, please contact Anthony Fowler at 770-377-0778 or Afowler263@yahoo.com.

The Senior Patrol Leader may be male or female, Cub Scout Adult, Boy Scout Adult, or District member. They do not have to be from our district as TASCO is opened to all in Scouting regardless of district or council.  They, as in a troop, will be in charge of the program for the weekend assisted by the Scoutmaster, Committee, and Staff.  As for staff, they may choose there own for the weekend. TASCO is for all adult scouters and friends of scouting.  Events are planned around patrols.  Come as a patrol or individually (there’s always room for someone in a patrol, or, if enough, a new patrol can be formed on site. Camp for the weekend or just come for the events on Saturday.  Activities suited for all adult ages.  Location is at Bert Adams and BSA rules apply.  

If we can’t get someone by mid-November, we will have to cancel the program.  This would be a shame.  We have had TASCO for 31 consecutive years.  2017 will be our 32 year of having fun, learning new skills, and learning events to take back to the units."
