A way to promote that can be used for just about everything is a phone bank.
Get a list of the unit leaders who need to know about training, or whatever
event is coming up, from your district or council office. Your DE should be
able to get this. One of the business leaders in our district will let us
use the phones at his business (a bank for instance). Get volunteers and
make sure your volunteers are entirely familiar with the event, and why the
person you are calling should be there. For instance, the benefits of being
trained, fun, fellowship, etc. The response to this kind of promotion has
always been great. Scouters are always enthusiastic when they talk it seems,
so it really helps in generating excitement to get people where you want and
need them to be.
