Build the Unit - New Unit Organizer (NUO)

The NUO is a member of the district membership committee.  It is position implemented to support the Unit Performance Guide method of building new units.

The new-unit organizer works closely with the institutional head or executive officer of the chartered organization to put together an organizing team. The new-unit commissioner supports that effort and strives to become a familiar face to that group, taking the lead in helping the team complete some aspects of its responsibilities.

Per “Unit Performance Guide”, vol. 4, gold ed., 522-025, 2016 Printing, Boy Scouts of America.

District & Unit New Member Coordinators

Unit New Member Coordinator

Sustaining strong membership in a unit depends partly on reaching new audiences to invite them to join the unit and partly on engaging new members and their families so that they feel welcomed and want to stay. The role of the New Member Coordinator is to ensure that both keys to success take place.

Per “Everything you need to know about the New Member Coordinator”,  position 4, September 25, 2019 by Bryan Wendell, Scouting magazine article: “This role replaced the roles of Unit Membership Chair and Parent Coordinator, which are no longer available.”

    units’ having one or more New Member Coordinators.

Lone Scouting

The primary district purpose is to support units. Lone Scouts and counselors (Cub Scouting and Scouts BSA) are not registered in units.  The council does not have the staff or organizational structure to support a large number of Lone Scouts. Per Scoutbook the BSA national Scouting app development team is working to implement the functionality to support Lone Scouts in the Scouting app.


Scoutreach is an after-school outreach program where the leader is a part-time paid employee.

District Executive Job Objectives

Two primary DE job objectives are fund raising and increasing membership. The district membership committee roles and goals extend beyond just increasing membership.
