Operation Arrow staff to utilize Slack for team collaboration

During the 2017 National Jamboree, the Service Corps and Trek Guides teams are utilizing Slack, a team communication and project management application. Slack is organized into labeled channels that serve as group chat forums, and it also has direct messaging capability. These teams will use four primary channels:

This channel is for team-wide communication and announcements. For example, after a Pulse eNews is sent, it will also be announced here. Only team administrators can post in this channel to avoid unnecessary team-wide notifications. 

A place for non-work-related flimflam, faffing, hodge-podge or jibber-jabber you'd prefer to keep out of more focused work-related channels. Share what you want (Scout appropriate, of course)!

#sc-general and #tg-general
These channels are specifically for Service Corps and Trek Guides staff announcements, discussion, and questions, respectively. 

#sc-chapter and #tg-chapter
Each Service Corps and Trek Guides chapter has its own channel for discussion and questions about Operation Arrow among itself. This will be a primary source of communication from chapter chiefs and advisers.
