Each year the June meeting is designated to elect the new Sweetwater District Committee. A nominating committee was formed and will present its recommended slate of members and district officers. This is an open meeting to anybody in the district.
Voting members at this meeting are: A) Existing committee members B) All Chartered organization reps who are registered and currently representing a unit within the district C) registered council members at large that reside in Sweetwater district.
The meeting is to be held at Cannon United Methodist Church at 7:00PM on Tuesday June 7th.
If you have a new member suggestion, please forward to me no later than June 1st. Nominations will not be accepted from the floor at this meeting.
We hope that many of you will join us that evening. The district meetings are run on a tight schedule and all business is usually conducted within a 60 to 70 minute time frame. It takes many volunteers that results in our successful program.
The Silver Beaver Award is one of Scouting's highest honors that can be bestowed upon an adult volunteer. It is an outstanding distinction for service!
To be considered, our best scouters must be nominated. In years past, the Sweetwater district has been well represented. There are many reasons for that.
Not the least of which, the winners worked hard for the council and deserve to be recognized. Let's get cooking and crank out some well-earned nominations by May 25th.
Access the form HERE. For questions about qualifications or how to fill effectively complete the nomination, please contact Ranny Burts. Please notify Ranny by email when submitting a nomination.
