National Council and Outdoor Program Group Update Keith Christopher Outdoor Programs/Properties Department October 22, 2014
The Foundation Scouting provides life- changing experiences young people can’t get anywhere else. Scouting makes the most of the little time parents have to impact their children.
Why Do We Need to Change? Growth has stalled. Voice of the Scout points to the need for a more member-centric organization. Resources are not optimized. A sense of urgency is required. Why Do We Need to Change?
Do we have the organizational capacity to add value to our current and future members?
Dissecting our Growth and Momentum Trends We have not evolved and adapted fast enough to match the expectations of our current and future members. Our traditional membership base has shifted. We have made decisions that negatively impacted our traditional revenue. Inefficiencies have strained financial capacity. Our talent pool does not reflect enough of the skills and diversity required.
We must serve more youth. We must keep our programs relevant to the youth of today and tomorrow. We must deliver what we promise. Our measure of our success must be viewed through a single question, “Does it make a difference in the life of a child?” Wayne Brock Chief Scout Executive
Experience What Does this Mean? We will shift from making members fit in today’s Scouting experience to creating relevant experiences our members, and future members, want.
