Fall Recruitment & Rechartering!
Now's the time to invite your friends to join the fun! Do you have a new friend at school whom you'd want to invite to join your Ship? Talk to your Skipper and pick a meeting or activity that can help showcase what you do. Then invite your friends to come. Pick a meeting and make it a time for everyone to bring a friend. Plan an activity that will be coming up shortly afterwards to give people a reason to decide to join now. "Hey, I hope you had fun tonight. Now if you join we have this great event coming up in a few weeks that you can do as well if you join now." Maybe it's a late-season overnight sail, or whitewater or paddle craft trip with some overnight camping. Whatever it is, make sure it's fun and of interest to the scouts. Remember, youth can help remind anyone turning 18 that they have to submit a new membership application as a Scout Adult. Help everyone in your ship to remember to pay their dues, do their paperwork and complete the required training well in advance of when the ship has to recharter. Let's do our part to help make it easier for the volunteer doing the recharter process to keep our Ship registered.
