Membership and Marketing Hub

Let’s move Scouting forward. The Marketing and Membership Hub is a resource to help you serve more youth in your area. From recruiting ideas to social media best practices, the Hub provides a one-stop resource to discover, activate, and improve your marketing and recruiting strategy.

The President’s Membership Challenge.  If you (Scout, parent, volunteer, or professional) recruit 5 new youth members to Daniel Webster Council (no Webelos crossovers count; five new to Scouting members, or re-signing up Scouts after a one-year absence from Scouting) between now and December 31, once those recruits are verified you will be deemed to have done “outstanding performance” for Scouting in NH and will receive the limited edition President’s Challenge Coin.

You will also grow Scouting in your own council here in N.H.  The new recruits need not all be recruited to one unit.  Recruit your cousin in Keene, recruit your other relatives in Barrington.  Recruit folks in your Sunday School class.  Recruit distant family friends in Hart’s Location.  Recruit the folks you played regional travel soccer with who came from various towns.  Give more youth (and particularly those 11-14 who never participated in Cub Scouts) the opportunity to enjoy, participate and grow in Scouting. 

Special additional mystery gift if you “dig in” and recruit your 5 new members before December 1.
