Has your unit signed up for Sabattis yet? Do not miss out on the early bird specials!! IMPORTANT NEWS FLASH!!!!
THE EARLY BIRD DEADLINE IS APPROACHING EVERYTHING MUST BE PAID BY 31 MARCH!
Starting February 1st girls, or young ladies will be invited to join the Scouts BSA program.
There is a lot of info out there about this. Some good, some completely wrong. The Council Volunteer and Professional staff would like to make sure everyone has the right information. We are asking anyone that is interested in starting a Scouts BSA Girl Troop or just wants to be sure they have the correct info to please let us know by January 15th. We will then set up a few information nights over the next few weeks after that.
We will be implementing an early adopter program for anyone interested in starting a Scouts BSA Girl linked Troop. This means everyone that is interested will need to be approved by the Council service center before they can start recruiting.
It is also important to understand that all recruitment and promotion material must be approved by the Council service center before units can use it.
The current timeline we are planning on for implementation of Scouts BSA Girl Troops is as follows.
· 2/2/2019-4/30/2019; Set up units and recruit girls into the program.
· Late-May TBD; Camping event just for Scouts BSA Girl Troops
· Early-June TBD; information meeting for Scouts BSA Girl Troops interested in going to Sabattis Scout Reservation.
It is important that we get this right for the young ladies that will be joining our Scouting program. So, please work closely with your District leadership and follow the guidelines set by the National office. If we all do this correctly and with the idea of giving these girls, the best possible program we can truly be proud of accomplishments.
