Rechartering
Recharter information will be sent out this month to Unit Leaders, Committee Chairs and Chartered Organization Representatives. If your unit did not receive their information, please contact the Scout Office.

Remember that the National registration fees for 2018 are $33 Registration Fee, $2 Health & Accident protection and a $40 liability coverage fee per unit. When compared to other activities and organizations, remain a very good investment in our youth.  Please note:  None of the registration fees collected during registration or rechartering stay local. 100% of these fees are sent to National. The Miami Valley Council relies on the Friends of Scouting Campaign to support our local council and camps.

University of Scouting
University of Scouting is the place to be for training. From how to add pizzaz to your Pack to planning high adventure treks for troops and crews, you will get the training you need for success.  Bring youth too; sessions are scheduled for Boy Scouts and Venturing youth! Space is limited so make sure to register today! Click here to learn more.
Year End Giving
As the end of the year draws closer many people will consider their personal tax situation and consider options to lessen their burden while helping others in the community. If you find yourself looking for an organization to help, please consider making a gift to the Miami Valley Council, BSA. Every dollar we receive helps keep Scouting strong in the Miami Valley and is vital to us fulfilling our mission to make a lasting impact on today's youth through leadership and character development. You can make a tax deductible donation of any amount by visiting    www.MiamiValleyBSA.org/donate   . Thank you for your continued support of Scouting. Together we are making a difference for thousands of youth across the Miami Valley each and every year.
