Looking for input on recruitment drives.
Other than typical boy recruiting boy and school nights -- what other
programs are you folks using for recruitment?
I am working up a quarterly program for our District and have several
ideas, but as with many things--I get the old "we ain't done it that
way before" or the "we been doin it this way ever since I came here"
I don't want to disrupt tried and true ways, but as I can point out
overall membership is down and losing ground steadily over the last
few years in our District.
It may be that I am too progressive, think that we have to somewhat
change with the times and appeal to what the boys want. Without
losing sight of the programs intent.
What say the list--I'm open too all suggestions--trying to get my
committee report ready for CCC meeting in a couple weeks.
