Geoff Zoeller Featured in CubCast

Geoffrey Zoeller, membership and relations VP for Patriots’ Path Council, is “right on” in this podcast when it comes why every Cub Scout pack should hold a new-parent orientation the night of their recruitment event.  Hear it here: http://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2014/08/04/new-parent-orientation-must-cub-scout-pack/.  He recommends that you look to incorporate & train your Cub Scout volunteers in this concept as part of your membership recruitment materials and plans if you haven’t done so already.

The guidebook for parents/guardians, Adventures in Cub Scouting, can be found as a menu option beneath Recruiting Resources: http://join.ppbsa.org/
