Prepared. For Life.
The district is able to provide statistical information on the following areas:
1) Membership Retention: This is the percentage of youth retained from December 31, 2012 - January 1, 2013.
2) Membership Growth: This is the percentage difference from the number of registered youth as of the date of the JTE report, and the number of youth your unit ended the year with on December 31, 2012. To determine how many registered youth you have in your unit, acquire a current roster from your council either by request, or by logging into the Internet Advancement website. Most units should see their units grow with fall recruitment.
3) Camping Attendance: The data for this field comes from unit reports of independent camps (as well as out-of-council camp attendance), and attendance reports from our own council camps. Note: LDS Troops, all teams, and all crews- it is impossible to know without input from you how many youth camped in the troop, team, and crew since most accompany and register for camp under the troop's identity. Just supply this data at the end of the year when you submit your form.
4) Advancement: The data for this field is supplied when units purchase patches from the Nor'West Scoutshop, and turn in an advancement report. We are only able to update records for registered youth only. Many units turn in advancement reports for youth who still need to be registered. This can be deflating your score.
