There will be a transition period to continue to enter the Activity Badges and Belt Loops. The system is now supported by some new browsers to include Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer 9, 10, and 11. If you need some help getting logged in please contact Leah.Miner@Scouting.org

Rechartering Members 2016

No later than December 15, all units (packs, troops, teams, crews, posts) are required to renew their affiliation with Scouting. Through the process, chartered (sponsoring) organizations, youth member and adult leader information is updated as well as registration fees and Boy's Life subscriptions are collected and paid. Unit Recharter packets for 2016 will be available at September roundtables. Please contact your District Executive if you are unable to attend.

 

Get ready for your best Popcorn Sale Ever! Units in attendance will receive their Popcorn Leadership Packet!

FYI

Tenure for Training Awards

Unless it specifically states in the requirements that tenure cannot be used for multiple training awards, it can be used.

In the past we said “one Scouter, one position” and did not want to reward those who wore multiple hats. We are more realistic now. If a Scouter accomplished all of the training and performance tasks during the same tenure, they have likely made Scouting better for more youth and deserve recognition.

Membership Goal for 2015

Our Goal for 2015 for Membership is 1,300 Scouts.  This is a Big task to get.  You will be getting more helpful tools in recruiting via emails or on this page.  Here is one idea for all of you.

If each Unit recruits 1 Scout per month, Our District will potentially have 392 Scouts.  

It will take all of us to get this done.  We will be also having trainings at Roundtable for this.  Stay Tune!

For those getting their Eagle rank

As a special Aloha Council recognition of his fine achievement, we would like to feature your son on our “Eagle Scouts Wall of Honor” at our Council Service Center.

If you choose to participate, Stan Wright Photography will take a complimentary 8” x 10” photo of your son. Please be sure that your son has sewn on his Eagle badge before taking the photo.  The photo will be displayed on our Honor Wall and given to you to keep after it has been prominently displayed for a period of time. You may contact Stan Wright at 352-6197 to make arrangements so we can showcase your son. 

We also encourage you to send your Eagle Court of Honor invitation to the National Eagle Scout Association, Aloha Chapter.  This committee would be pleased to send you a congratulatory certificate, and if scheduling permits, a representative would be honored to attend your Court of Honor to make the presentation. Please forward all information to Marilyn Fowler at the council address or Marilyn.fowler@scouting.org.
