I would like to thank those who sent responses to my queries for how to
start new units and how to find new leaders.
I would also like to offer thanks to the Cascade Pacific Council for their
generous loan of facilities for the Internet training and attempted online
discussion. On that line I would like to offer personal thanks to Nicole
Reyes, the Sea Exploring District Executive because she was alot of help
for this and our conference.
The fact that I did not get much response (either on list or at the
S.A.L.T. conference) simply tells me that this is a subject where national
discussion could lead to real benefit for Sea Exploring.
In closing, I would like to keep the thread alive and to that end I will
append a summary of comments that Commodore Johnson made when I asked him
the same question.
Commodore Johnson suggested that a good place to find leaders already
attuned to the Scouting program, with the scouting spirit is in Scouting.
Going to district roundtables and seeking leaders who want to move on from
the troop scouting program are a good source, as well as going over the old
rosters of ships in your area and finding old members who would be willing
to come back and start a new unit.
