November 2019 – Pack Communication

CubCast - Mon, 2019-10-28 13:31

Playwright George Bernard Shaw said, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
Communication is so important to the success of a Pack, so joining us this month is Sherry Miller, who has held every den leader position and several different committee positions with Pack 84 out of First Baptist Church in Sulphur, Louisiana. Sherry is currently serving as Roundtable Commissioner.
Together we’re going to figure out the best practices for Pack Communication.

An organizing principle is a core assumption from which everything else around it can derive a classification or a value so this month we’re going to figure out the structure of a den…you know – how to get it organized. Joining us for the discussion is Barb Perez, Development Director in the National Capital Area Council.

August 2019 – Parent Orientation

CubCast - Wed, 2019-07-24 16:36

Hopefully your recruiting efforts are bringing lots of new boys and girls into your dens and packs. But welcoming new members also means welcoming new parents, and you need to let those new to the program know what’s expected of both the Cub Scout and the parent. We were a little surprised to learn that a lot of packs don’t have an orientation for parents.

Jamie Smith started out in Scouting about eight years ago as a concerned parent. That led to becoming den leader, assistant Cubmaster, and then Cubmaster. However, it was the role of a concerned parent that made him an expert on parent orientation. Jamie shares with us why it’s important for you to have a parent orientation and what that entails.
