Meet Wisconsin River's New Training Chair! 
 
Greetings Wisconsin River District!  I am excited to join the District Team as the Training Chair. I grew up in a scouting family, worked professionally for the Boy Scouts of America for 7 years, and can't wait to now volunteer with the District. I have always enjoyed training adult volunteers and hope to help everyone feel supported and knowledgeable about their roles. I can be reached at amanda.sherry@gmail.com or by phone/text 608.553.4560
 
We have a live training happening on Saturday November 9, 2019 for any Cubmaster, Den Leaders, Pack Committees, Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster, and Troop Committees that need to complete training.  Wisconsin River District is working hard to have 100% of our leadership fully trained.  If you have not complete the online training for your position, please register HERE and join us on November 9th.  Starting in December the District Team will be reaching out to untrained leaders to assist in completing training. 
 
As we grow the Training Team, I am asking any Scouters who have a passion for teaching and training to reach out to me.  My goal is to have experienced Scouters available to local units to assist with training opportunities.   
 
I look forward to working with everyone!!
