2015 Strategic Plan Update

Dear Longhouse Council:

Last year we began an amazing journey of a bottom-up strategic plan process.  Part of that journey was a periodic update to keep everyone informed of our progress and our challenges. We have had both!

Please find a PDF document, available to you here, to download and review. I look forward to visiting each district in the coming months with our expanded key 5 including our new Scout Executive, Grey Rolland. We will be looking for feedback and fresh ideas.

As always, please let us know if you wish to contribute to the strategic plan process.

Yours In Scouting,
Scott Armstrong
President, Longhouse Council, BSA
