Virtual Impact Sessions Announced

You told us that you wanted National-Level Impact Sessions that were more available to commissioners throughout the country. We heard you and took action. The result is what we call Virtual Impact Sessions.

Virtual Impact Sessions are 2 hour live online training events. They provide a laser focused session on a relevant topic. Participation is limited to 30 people and are scheduled monthly (except June and December). They run from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern Time

You can register at: https://www.scouting.org/commissioners/training/national/

The current topics scheduled are:

Effective Commissioners: “The Right Stuff”

Recruiting for Diversity: “Including All of Our Friends”

Inside Recruiting: A Menu to Getting the Scouters

Elements of a Successful Retention Plan
