Fall Recruitment Training and Cook-out 2014

 

Dear Unit Leader(s):

We hope that this email reaches you well and you and your scouting units and families have had a great, safe summer.  If you are a fan of Game of Thrones that you understand the reference “Winter is Coming”; well in the scouting realm we say “Fall is Coming.”  Fall and the start of school is our largest opportunity for recruitment.  Through schools, PTAs, and other clubs/organizations we show families that the Boy Scouts of America’s programs are strong and healthy in our communities.

On August 20th at 6:00 PM the Dulaney District Membership Team will be hosting our annual Fall Recruitment Training at the Maryland State Game and Fish Protective Association.  All units (Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Venturing) are encouraged to attend.  At this training we will give an overview of the recruitment season and the District Plan.  We will also be handing out all necessary information and materials for a successful recruitment.  Currently our district serves less than 10% of the total available youth across all grades.  By the end of the fall we hope that number will be 12%+, but we need all units to help take the reins for their recruitments.  Part of our training will focus on program specific recruitment ideas and how we can grow our membership at the Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Venturing levels. 

We need to have at least one adult from every unit attend.  If you would like to bring more than one, feel free!  This includes the boy scout and venturing programs for the first time and we need a good showing.

Dinner will be served, however registration is required to let us know of your attendance.  Please visit http://www.baltimorebsa.org/event/2014-fall-recruitment-training/1579319 to register for this free informational training.

Come with ideas to share on how your pack/troop recruits, an open mind to new ideas, and be ready to help grow the BSA in central Baltimore County.

This will take place at the Maryland State Game and Fish Protective Association Hall, 8735 Honeygo Blvd in Perry Hall, MD. 21128 Dinner and fellowship at 6:00 pm sharp, with the meeting afterward.

*As a bonus; due to new recharter timelines and deadlines, all recharter packets for 2015 will be available at this meeting. 

For questions regarding membership or this training please contact the Dulaney District Membership Chair – Don Walters at don3039@MSN.com

Thanks all and we hope to see you on August 20th.

Notification of Increase to Council and Unit Accident and Sickness Insurance‏

The Baltimore Area Council is announcing that the Accident and Sickness Insurance fee that is paid at charter renewal time for each registered youth and adult leaders will increase from $2.00 per person to $4.00 per person and will begin with all unit charter renewals that have a December 31, 2014 expiration date.

In addition, beginning in January 2015, all new members who join throughout the year will pay a prorated Accident and Sickness fee of $0.34 per month.  For example, if a member joins in September and their unit expires in December, they will pay a 4 month prorated fee of $1.36 in addition to their prorated membership and Boys’ Life fees.

This entire fee pays the cost of the Council's Accident and Sickness Insurance policy. This policy is designed to help meet the costs of medical care for Scouts and Scout Leaders participating in Scouting activities. This accident and sickness insurance is provided for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, and adult volunteer leaders registered in the council, and covers them for accidents and sickness while participating in any official Scouting activity.

The cost of the Council’s Accident and Sickness Insurance policy has continued to increase over the past two years, but because of the National Council’s increases with membership fees and its General Liability Insurance Policy the Baltimore Area Council did not want to add another increase and absorbed the cost for the 2014 program year.  Beginning in 2015, the Baltimore Area Council is unable to continue to absorb the increase of the Accident and Sickness Insurance policy.

Thank you for your cooperation and commitment to Scouting.

To view our Council Policy and forms, please visit http://www.baltimorebsa.org/volunteer-resources/insurance/30054

Please begin sharing throughout your District so that units can begin planning as they build their budgets.

Change in Unit Registration Status and Membership Reporting

A change in the national reporting of membership data will begin effective January 1, 2015. Starting then, a unit that has not reregistered by its expiration date will be considered “separated” and immediately dropped from BSA’s membership reporting. There will no longer be a “lapse period” for units that do not reregister on time; we will no longer use the term “lapsed” for a unit that has not renewed. This will also change the way we report membership totals. Currently, a lapsed unit’s membership continues to be counted for 60 days in council membership totals. 

 The new definition will begin with units that have an effective date of January 1, 2015. This means that units with a December 31, 2014 expiration date will be included. Volunteers will retain access to MyScouting, MyScouting tools, Internet Rechartering and Internet Advancement for 30 days after their unit has expired and become separated. 

 A separated unit will have 12 months to reregister as a separated/reregistered unit. Once a separated unit has been reregistered, the unit will be included on membership reports starting in the business month that the recharter was posted.

What does this mean?

This means that any unit that does not have a completed and submitted charter before January 1, 2015 for the following year will immediately expire and all membership will be lost.  To avoid any loss in membership the Dulaney District/BAC will be supplying recharter materials 1-2 months earlier than usual to give unit leaders the ability to complete the online process and submittal before the deadline.  Please look for more information at Roundtable and on the Dulaney District Website.
