SMMPodcast – Recruiting and Retention

Welcome back to the SMMPodcast, after a long break in the podcast we are back at it and talking Scouting.
In this episode, we talk about Recruiting and Retention.  It’s about that time of the year to start thinking recharter and recruiting for the coming year.
Listen in as we discuss the common reasons Scouts leave and how we can get them to come join us in Scouting!  I may not have all the answers, but I sure like to talk about Scouting.
All the music in this Podcast is by the Tobasco Donkeys from Philmont.
Hey if you want, you can hear the podcast on Stitcher also.
This show is sponsored by  Visit our friends at ClassB for all your units branding needs.
I hope you enjoy the show.  Drop me a message, and email or leave a comment on the blog.
Have a Great Scouting Day!

    Jerry, I just got done listening to the podcast. Good to hear from you again. This is the classic Scoutmaster Jerry that I grew to admire when you first started doing these talks and when I was a new scoutmaster myself. You had a well prepared topic, an expression of the recruiting / retention problem, local examples of the points of your discussion, thoughts for thoughtful persons, and what I perceived to be a good outlook for the future. This was not a “pick up the microphone and start talking randomly” type of discussion, but well conceived and well executed. Bravo. keep it up.
