A district nominating committee is responsible for selecting a slate of competent officers and members at large for the next year. More specifically, the committee (1) reviews the qualifications for district officers and members at large, (2) studies the participation and performance of last year’s officers and members at large, (3) makes suggestions for each officer and member at large, matching skills to needs, and (4) personally contacts each nominee and secures an agreement to serve.  The committee will submit its slate of candidates to the annual business meeting for election on Thursday, November 5th, 2015 at Woodward Academy at 6:00PM. Eligible voters must be present at the meeting to cast their vote. Proper election procedures follow.

How Is Your Unit Doing ... How Can We Help?

Posted on Sep 26 2015 - 12:09pm

One way to Help Units in our District is through these Troop and Pack Unit Service Plan tools (or use this SurveyMonkey Service Plan for Troops, and this SurveyMonkey Service Plan for Packs, with the same questions), adapted from the versions at my.scouting.org to include helpful resources as you review how your Unit is doing.  If you use these Troop and Pack Unit Service Plan tools, feel free to submit to your commissioner or the District Commissioner for a discussion and recognition of how you're doing!
