Posted on Nov 10 2015 - 3:55pm

As noted in our Leader Training Page, you can take Training anywhere, not just within our District boundaries.  So see the Council Training Calendar for other training this Saturday, November 14 and another on Thursday, December 19.  Cub Leader Training is also available through the National On Line Training site at ScoutingU (same login as at My.Scouting.Org -- note that they have created many "short" modules for training, so that you can prioritize on the ones you want most ... and they suggest which ones you take "Before the First Meeting" and "Within 30 Days", and for help, see these YouTube Videos about how to use the site: "Add Training to My Learning", "Course Catalog and Search" and "My Learning Plan").

Annual Business Meeting Thursday November 5 at 7:00 PM at Woodward

Posted on Nov 3 2015 - 1:42pm

As previously announced the Nominating Committee has received ideas and names, and they will present their recommendations at the District Annual Business Meeting this Thursday at Woodward's Middle School.  It will actually start at 7:00, not 6 as announced in the earlier email.  The Annual Business Meeting includes presentation of a slate by the Nominating Committee, and voting by Chartered Organization Representatives and District Committee Members.   And because a District Committee exists to help Units do Scouting, this will also be an opportunity to discuss how we can help Units do Scouting.
