Hello Impeesa District Leaders!
I’m excited to announce our Fall, 2014 Join Scouting Kickoff is set for Thursday, August 14th at 7:00pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - same location as our monthly Roundtable meeting.  Gathering and dinner will begin at 6:30 and our meeting will start promptly at 7:00.  I expect us to adjourn by 8:15.
At our kickoff, we will be distributing all of the Join Scouting materials for your use in promoting Joining Scouts at your location, including yard signs, pencils, flyers, mini-boys life magazines and more! 
We are asking that each unit be represented by their Membership coordinator.  Cub masters and other registered unit leaders are welcome to attend.  Attendance is imperative to a successful round-up.  We will be going over marketing strategies, adopt-a-school locations, coordinating flyer distribution and application turn-in procedures, and more.  Should you have leaders / parents in your unit that are members of local school PTA’s, please invite them as well.  One of our goals is to cover the distribution of flyers as effectively and efficiently as possible, maximizing every units potential to gain new scouts.
Also at our kickoff, we will have a presentation on what the new Cub program will look like beginning in 2015.  Our own Kari McMichael will be sharing what she learned on her recent attendance at Philmont Scout Ranch; you will be getting the very latest on the future of Cub Scouting.  This is an event you won’t want to miss!
We look forward to a great kickoff and seeing you on Thursday, August 14th!
In Scouting,
