Just Launched: Membership Volunteer Resources
Membership Committee volunteers are the backbone in our efforts to recruit more youth and adults into Scouting. To impact the lives of youth in each unit, volunteers need to be more involved in the process of recruiting and retaining youth.
A new online Membership Committee resource, available the first week of November at www.scouting.org/Membership under the Membership Chair tab, can assist unit committee members in areas including community projects, membership analysis, marketing, Webelos-to-Scout transition plans, and more!
An email introducing the online resource and the new membership chair position (a functional position in the unit committee) will be sent to regional and area membership volunteers and Scout executives the week of Nov. 4. Unit Key 3s and district chairs will receive a similar email the week of Nov. 18.
This is a great opportunity to empower and engage our unit volunteers in being more involved with the membership growth and retention of their units. Currently, many strong units have at least one person in the unit responsible for membership and have been successful with both membership growth and retention. We hope these resources provide support to any unit needing additional help to turn around membership declines.
For more information about this position and the resources available, contact Garfield Murden in Membership Impact at 972-580-2478.
