Passion The professional opportunity to become a marketing partner of TrinityWorks, The Summit: Bechtel Family Nationnal Scout Reserve, and The Boy Scouts of America excites us because it aligns with the personal interests and values of the members of both firms. We not only seek out stimulating business and marketing challenges, but we seek to work with those organizations whose operations benefit society and keep us all active in the outdoors.
Most of the WELDers, for example, first became acquainted with each other through pursuits as outdoors professionals in whitewater, rock climbing and rescue instruction. All of us have chosen to live in Southern West Virginia, in large part, because of the quality of life that comes with wilderness and these activities. Some staff members also have direct experience with Scouting...
It would be both an honor and a pleasure to help promote The Summit, to raise interest in and attendance of the 2013 Jamboree, and to be charged with creating new and greater affinity for Scouting, across all ages. ...and WELD's Chief Content Officer Reid Williams
is an Eagle Scout. www.aceraft.com | ACE Adventure Resort | WELD designed, developed and manages ongoing digital marketing and business innovation as an exclusive service provider of West Virginia’s largest outdoor outfitter.

Tactics * Simple — It can be deep, it just better be digestible.
* Unexpected — Surprise does a lot to hold attention.
* Concrete — Ideas tied to our senses are not easily dispossessed.
* Credible — If it’s believable, it’s more memorable.
* Emotional — We remember what we care about.
* Stories — People are naturally intrigued by compelling narrative.

Project: BSA Viral Campaign Proposal
Mariah Hibarger commented on a message:
I definitely think this (BSA) is a good place to bring in geo-location
social gaming platforms like FourSquare and Gowalla that
Gretchen has been researching. They seem like a social media
channel that will appeal to the demographic and will be a
powerful motivator for activities/engagement surrounding the
camp. It's highly unlikely (in my opinion) that kids will be
forced to part with their cell phones, so let's make sure such
tools are being utilized effectively by the core "curriculum" or
Mariah 1. Build Networks 11. Share Content The Empowered Marketing team uses a variety of web-based platforms for project management.
These include Basecamp, VeoProject, Google Apps, Skype, GoToMeeting and more.
In the initial defining period of the project, we will build out a scope of work and develop a
communication plan matrix which outlines the
preferred modes of communication for all stakeholders, their desired level of detail in reporting
and their contractual response times. TOOLS The 10 pillars guide the process and enable sticky story generation that best resonates with priority customers
We determine which channels most appropriately deliver the goods
We use creativity and technology to manage a conversation

Scouts still need to know how to orient by compass, topo maps and stars to "be prepared" when the network goes down, but Scouting must prepare youth for the growing omnipresence of technology connected to personal computing devices.
