Does your Unit know if it has new-members-in-waiting?

Posted on

The BSA has a recruiting website called http://www.BeAScout.org. Prospective new members are driven there to express interest in your unit.

Right now we have had nearly 200 prospects grow through the system throughout the district. We currently have 32 invitations hanging out there. If you have already reviewed the Inviation Manager as the Chartered Org Rep, Committee Chair, or Cubmaster/Scoutmaster, you know your status. If you have not, log in to my.scouting.org. If a red number appears in the upper right-hand corner, you have invitations to send.

If you have one done on paper, then you can mark it complete. This purges it.

If you have sent the invitation, you can then move to the Application Manager to watch to see if the family has done the paperwork. We have two applications that are awaiting approval right now.

Please make sure that you have reviewed your settings. This allows you to set your dues, decide who can approve the application, and communicate stock information to new members such as website and calendar information.

If you use it, you may find problems, but your prospects are already using it. Are you closing the deal for low-hanging fruit?
