Mid-year Report Cards?!?   

Scouting's Journey to Excellence (JTE) is an assessment tool you may use to measure how your pack compares with national "expectations" on various program elements in delivering the Scouting program to its youth. CLICK HERE to find tracking charts and information. Your unit leadership can perform the mid-year review themselves, or better yet, contact your Unit Commissioner and go through the form with him/her. If you have any area(s) that you feel like you're falling short, your Unit Commissioner will very likely have some suggestions to help you increase your rating.

Questions? Contact David Walshak, Division Commissioner, at dwalshak.bsa@gmail.com.
Check Your Records Now For Recharter Later   

We know - feels like you just finished recharter. But our council commissioner corps says there's a little work you can do NOW that will make the next recharter easier. CLICK HERE to learn more. 

Have questions? Ask your Unit Commissioner. Don't know who your Unit Commissioner? Contact your area's District Commissioner for further information. Each District Commissioner is listed on our district contacts page.
