“Back to the Pack” Cub Scout, and Troop annual planning meetings

Now that your unit has attended one of the four Program Preview meetings, it’s time to put the information and knowledge you received to work.  Pick a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, allow two to three hours for the planning meeting, and invite all the unit’s leaders & parents to attend.  Using the information received at Program Preview, chart out your unit’s Ideal Year of Scouting, and create your budget.  After you are finished, create your unit’s very own calendar, which you can share with your current families, and all the new families that will be joining your unit, during this fall’s recruiting Roundup season!
