Sioux Council Program Planning ZOOM WEBINARS
The Sioux Council will be hosting Zoom Program Planning webinars on the below dates in April. These webinars will take the place of our traditional monthly Roundtable – you only need to attend one session. The planning guides will be mailed to every Committee Chair, Cubmaster and Scoutmaster. This meeting will be online only – you can attend this webinar from your home via phone or your computer. If you would like to attend in person, as in the past, please coordinate that with your District Executive or Commissioner. A representative from your Pack or Troop will need to be on the webinar to qualify for the bonus popcorn sale commission. So, we strongly encouraged that your unit have someone attend to insure you get the maximum funds from the Popcorn Sale.
One of the single most important things a unit can do, along with having trained leaders, is to develop an annual program calendar. This helps every parent in the unit know what will be happening in the next year and when. This is especially important to be able to give to new families when they join. Along with developing the calendar comes the development of the budget to support your great programming, and we will focus this year’s webinar on the steps to developing them. Budgeting and planning allow families to know what their responsibility is and why involvement in fundraisers is so important. Don’t forget, that your one-page budget and one-page calendar will need to be sent to your local professional in August to qualify for the Popcorn Sale bonus commission.
