Web & Social Media Training for Districts & Units

Event Details

If you are in charge of using the web and social media to recruit and motivate Scout membership, this is the event for you! 

Last fall NCAC was part of a national pilot program using Facebook to promote individual packs' Join Scout Nights. The result? Packs who participated had a 15% increase in new members.

Join us to learn how your unit, district, and council-level recruiting events can get this kind of Scout Spirit!

This workshop will give you the skills you need and help you teach others to be modern communicators. With multiple breakout groups to choose from you will leave with new skills, actionable information, and the ability to train others in your unit or district to be compliant with BSA's online policies. Members of the Council Marketing & Communications Committee will be on hand during and after the event to answer additional questions.
