Best Practices – 57:00

The segment on was not recorded but all the materials that the presenters showed are available at

New Member Coordinator in Each Pack – The new member coordinator is a new position on each pack’s committee.  Your NMC makes sure that new families are welcomed and leave their first meeting connected with the pack.  This is a great way for someone with an outgoing personality to help families feel at home right away.  They wear a distinctive red polo shirt that makes them stand out for the new folks to find.  See attached brochure.  On the adult application for your new member coordinator, write “NMC”.   If one of your current committee members is taking the NMC role, please let us know by emailing
