Email Communications Guidelines
Email is a major tool our Council can use to communicate with our members. The following are guidelines we have for the use of email addresses and email communications.
Email communications should come from official BSA/Garden State Council accounts/addresses.
Email communications should be relevant to BSA/Garden State Council updates, programs, and activities.
Email communications should go through approved systems whenever possible, thereby avoiding the use of a volunteer’s personal email account.
Email communications should mask the recipient email addresses from the view of other recipients.
Volunteer Event Coordinators: Our event registration system includes an email tool. Event coordinators should use this tool to communicate event updates and details to participants. If a volunteer cannot access the system, they can send the content to their staff advisor.
District-Level Committee Volunteers: Volunteers who need to reach groups of members through email can send their message and information to their District Executive, so they can follow the above General Guidelines. If a volunteer’s position gives them access to members through other official systems (My.Scouting, Scoutbook, etc.), they can use those tools for communication as well.
Thank you for helping us protect our members’ personal data and thank you for your support of Scouting.
