8 Let’s Talk About Recruiting Commissioners

9  Have a long history ◦ Preceded professional Scouting ◦ Were chosen for personal qualities and skills ◦ Considered the local authority for Scouting ◦ Were highly respected  That’s not always the case today.  And that makes it hard to recruit commissioners.

10  Stand tall as an example  Recruit highly respected people  Make commissioners identifiable  Make them visible  Recognize them in front of their constituents  Present them as an authority in Scouting

11  All kinds of people ◦ Diversity is the key ◦ Experienced Scouters--or not?  What qualities do commissioners need?

12  Within units  Individuals with Scouting ties  Organizations or jobs that appeal to mentors

13  Don’t ask them--YET  Build a relationship  Find out what others think about them

14  Review the information you have ◦ Choose 3 talking points to use in your visit ◦ Choose some others just in case (Plan B) ◦ Plan arguments for the common excuses ◦ Plan your “close the sale” Review all of this with the person you will take with you.

15  Make the appointment  Take plenty of time  Focus on them  Be honest/specific

16  If they say “no” ◦ Keep the relationship alive  If they say “maybe” ◦ Begin the “go-along” and ask again later  If they say “yes” ◦ Begin the “go-along” ◦ Make a first assignment ◦ Continue to support
