The Scouting On-line Community November 5, 2008

Hello fellow Scouters,

The National Boy Scout of America recently rolled out a new Scouting on-line community. This is a social network site that brings leaders together. It’s still in beta form, and there will no doubt be a lot of modifications and improvements to it in the coming months. But even as it stands now I think it’s a great site and worth signing up. The thing I’ve found most useful are the Groups. You can join a group already formed and post ideas, questions, etc. in the forums. Or if there’s a particular area of Scouting you enjoy and you don’t see a group, you can form one. Personally, I think this will be the most powerful part of the on-line community – bringing those together with the same functions/interests/expertise.

To be part of the community, you first need to update your MyScouting profile to allow access to the on-line community. Log on to MyScouting at National’s site http://www.scouting.org/, then choose the Profile tab and scroll all the way to the bottom and check the Community box. You can then log on to the site at http://community.scouting.org/.

For those Scouting trainers out there, make sure you check out the Trainers group at Groups\Volunteers\Trainers. It’s open to everyone, even if you aren’t a trainer. There are already some great discussions going on.

In Scouting,

-Scouter Jeff <><
