On behalf of our Membership Chair, Craig McGannon, I want to extend an invitation for your unit to attend our 2012 Join Scout Night (JSN) kickoff to be held on Wednesday, July 25th at Edenton St. UMC beginning at 6:30.  EVERY UNIT IN NEUSE RIVER DISTRICT SHOULD BE REPRESENTED AT THIS KICKOFF!

This kickoff meeting will accomplish the following;

  • Ensure your unit is correctly listed on the JSN flyer that will be distributed
  • Ensure your unit is properly identified on the BeaScout website
  • Ensure your unit leaders are aware of the JSN process we will use in 2012 to help you recruit new scouts into your unit
  • Set specific recruiting date / time / and place for your unit JSN
  • Assign every school throughout the district to units for the purpose of distributing JSN materials (flyers / pencils etc…)
  • Distribute pencils and yard signs to your unit for use in recruiting new scouts
  • Establish new application turn-in procedures for our District
  • Set JSN flyer printing deadlines

As you can see, there is a lot to accomplish and each units attendance is necessary to ensure our entire JSN process runs smoothly throughout the District.
