New - Membership Resource Pages

With schools back in session and Fall Recruitment underway, we have a new Membership Registration/Renewal Resources page that provides helpful information to assist you in getting your new youth and adults properly registered.

The unit recharter period is on the horizon. We also have a new Recharter Resources page with tools and tips to help you successfully recharter your unit. The page has a link for Journey to Excellence, which is not only a way to measure your unit's performance at end of the year, but also as a tool during your annual unit planning.

Both pages are always available via the Membership section of the website.

Fall Recruitment Resources

Need some help with Fall Recruitment? Order custom flyers from council, reserve the use of recruiting equipment and let us know how your event went. We even hava a resource page to help.
