Membership and Marketing Hub

Recruit a Friend to Scouting Joining Fee Waiver Initiative

Recruit a friend to Scouting, fill out the joining fee waiver request form, submit the confirmation email with the new youth application and the new youth member will have their joining fee waived. If you retain the youth at recharter the unit will receive a $25 credit that can be used to reduce the unit’s recharter fees.

The President’s Membership Challenge.  If your UNIT recruits 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 June 30th, 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. The unit will determine who is most deserving of the challenge coin.

But wait, there is more! Until June 30, 2021, if your unit recruits 5 new youth and you submit the information using the Council President’s Membership Challenge Form, your unit will earn additional funds to use towards your Scouting program! Funds are limited to the first 30 units so start recruiting today!
