Myths and Facts about applications
Myth: You should hold onto any new scout applications until you turn in your recharter packet, its less work on council.
FACT: Waiting until recharter actually creates double work for both the leaders and council, so you should turn in any New Scout Applications immediately.
Myth: You should hold onto any new scout applications until the next Roundtable.
FACT: Waiting until roundtable delays the scout input, slowing down your ability to access their information in advancement and other council systems, so you should turn in any New Scout Applications immediately.
Myth: You should hold onto any new scout applications until we get done with recruiting.
FACT: We should be recruiting year-round thus the end will never come. Turn in any New Scout Applications immediately to be sure your new scouts are covered under Scouting’s umbrella insurance policy.
Myth: You need to drive any new scout applications down to the council office.
FACT: You can turn in New Scout Applications in a variety of ways:
- Arrange an application pickup, we will come to you!
- Arrange a meeting location, Starbucks always works
- Hand them to your commissioner
- Bring them to the next scout function (Roundtable, Committee, Training, etc)
Just don’t hold onto them! 🙂
