Starting July 2014, we began to solicit any and all Longhouse Council volunteers to contribute their ideas and critiques of Council program and facilities. From the vast amount of feedback we received, hundreds of people worked thousands of hours to formulate a Strategic Plan. Attached is the Executive Summary of that plan – a realistic plan for what can we can reasonably accomplish in 2015. On January 14, 2015 the Executive Board approved this plan. As we have throughout the process, I invite all to play a role in the Strategic Plan. Click below to download your copy, read and see if there is a project listed you wish to get involved with to help grow and strengthen scouting within The Longhouse Council.
Thank you, we have a great Scouting year ahead of us.
Yours In Scouting,
