The NCAC Council is very concern of the year to year decline in the number of Tiger Cubs. This will have a domino effect of declining Cub Scout and Boy Scout memberships in the future. The Council is making a full fledged effort to mitigate this effect by encouraging all Packs to start recruiting kindergartners in the Spring. The Council has dedicated the week of April 7 – April 11 as the Week of 1,000, hoping to recruit 1,000 new Tiger Cubs. The Council is hoping that Packs will hold a Join Scouting Night during that week. Statistics show that Packs who recruit in the Spring significantly increase their Tiger Cub recruitment.
Patrick Ring, Vice Chair Membership will be providing JSN training this Thursday at 7 pm before Roundtable. He will also repeat this training at the April and May Roundtables. The training will be more of a discussion of how to better recruit Tiger Cubs and how the Committee can help you with this effort. We would also like to hear from those Packs who have been successful in recruiting Tiger Cubs. Attendees should be the Packs’s JSN coordinator and/or a Tiger parent who has shown interest in helping out.
Contact Patrick Ring, Vice Chair Membership, with any questions. His contact info is firstname.lastname@example.org and 703-674-6178
