Entries for July 2010

You are a top leader if you are a Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Varsity Coach, Venturing Advisor, or Sea Skipper.

I am contacting you in an ongoing effort to gather your training dates for the Council to meet its objective of all Top Leaders being trained by 12/31/10.  We have created a portal for you to input your training dates at your convenience although we are asking that you have this completed by 8/15/10.  In order to be prepared you will need the following before signing on to the site:
·         Membership #
·         Trained Cards (if you no longer have your card but can remember the month/year that is acceptable – we believe a Scout is honest and trustworthy)
Being a trained leader constitutes the following courses:
All – Youth Protection Training (Venturing Leaders be sure it is the Venturing YPT), Fast Start for your position, and leader specific (for your position).
Scoutmasters/Varsity Coaches/ Venturing Advisors must have Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills.
I have attached a document with the link and the steps needed to complete the entry form.  This whole process, once you have pre-gathered the data, should take no more than 5 minutes of your time.  I can promise you this since I am also a top leader and have completed the process. 
Again, please complete this no later than 8/15/10.  This will help the training team in preparing for what types of training we need to be sure to offer this Fall in order to meet our Council initiative.
If you have any questions or any problems, please contact me.
