Dan Beard Leadership Institute and Vision Round Table
Have you been trained this year? If you are a new leader or a veteran Scouter, it’s always good to sharpen the saw and attend one of the great trainings put on by the Dan Beard Training Committee. This year’s Leadership institute will be held on Saturday November, 14th. All leader specific trainings will be offered, as well as training for Committee Members and Charter Organization Representatives. Immediately following the training institute, the District will be hosting the Vision Round Table. This is where volunteers from all over the District will talk about their plan and vision for the next year for the District as a whole and their unit. This is a great opportunity to let everyone know what works and what needs improvement going into the next year.
