Creating a Growth Strategy

The "Creating a Growth Strategy" Manual is a step by step document which can be used in part or whole.  It defines Growth and Retention.  It includes a calendar of activities to assist with growth throughout the Scouting season and how a Group Committee can make a plan.  There are details about best practices on recruiting and how to evaluate the Group’s plan.
