This series of workshops and casual “campfire” chats is a great way for Group Commissioners and Group Support Scouters to connect on a variety of topics that are the current hot buttons of conversations across the country. Together we will explore themes such as; recruitment, planning and goal setting, preparation for summer and fall, quality support, team building, panel discussions, building a positive culture, and so much more! We have even included an evening with our National Key 3 where they will host an informal conversation around best practices and sustainability. So, sit back and scroll through the full descriptions on our menu for group leadership, and sign up to secure your place. We are excited to have you along on these opportunities to connect, share and learn.”
