In another thread about Lightening Leader Loads and (essentially) asking "Pack Meetings?  How is this still a Thing?", SSScout noted some issues in recruiting help, which is right on point with an RT presentation I'm making tonight.


Fifty Ways to Lure a Leader (apologies to Paul Simon)

There must be fifty ways
To lure a leader

You ask the whole Pack, Jack
Every woman and man, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Not just one, two or three …
Every new one’s a plus, Gus
At Pack meetings, don’t discuss much
Do a ”one on one” plea, Lee
Every new leader is key


I've attached the piece below, but it stems from a page I have called "Nuts and Bolts of Leader Organizing and Recruiting", which is a sub-topic of "Recruiting Leaders -- Turning Parents into Helpers, and Helpers into Leaders".  


Lots of resources there, but I've attached a pdf of the Fifty Ways to Lure a Leader piece here too.

Dang, you are good !   I promise to hijack every single page to pass around here in Beltway Land! 


Here's the page on Dropbox we made for promoting Scouting (admittedly, local notations, change to your own) : https://www.dropbox....stuff.docx?dl=0

bbender, this is awesome material!  Would you mind if I share your 50 Ways document on my blog, Cub Scout Ideas (giving you credit, of course)?

This is awesome, thank you so much. I feel like our pack has been slowly imploding all year and getting more help will help alleviate the burnout.

I want to implement all these ideas... Starting 6 months ago.
