Email Campaigns

  • November 2020 – Changing Email service provider – Starting in November, we are transitioning to a new service provider for distributing Council-wide emails – including the twice monthly eNews. In conjunction with this change, we are building a new mailing list based on member data from the National Council’s database. Initially, our main list will comprise registered adults representing Unit Key 2, non-unit volunteers who serve in District and Council leadership roles, and our professional staff. … At the Unit level, we ask that each Key 2 arrange to share our communications with whatever method they currently use to communicate with their membership. We will continue to notify GGAC leadership in advance of the main list for major news releases.

Public Relations

From VP of Communications

  • September 2020 – How to Send and Receive Local & Council News
    • Part A of the BSA Annual Health and Medical Record includes a release agreement for demographic and visual media for photos and videos. This must be received by the council communications leadership in order to post local Scout or unit news. 
    • We are currently developing an online form process to submit local news. Until then, email newsworthy@ggacbsa.orgwith any news items and we will screen.
    • A survey will be sent within the next month to solicit feedback on communication preferences.
    • We encourage districts to appoint a volunteer as a communications liaison on their org chart (and member of the council communications committee), so that we might have an easier conduit to share important information from the council.
