District Committee Meeting
Every first Thursday of the month at 7pm
First United Methodist Church
A Scouting district is a geographical area of the local BSA council, determined by the council executive board. District leaders mobilize resources to ensure the growth and success of units within the district’s territory. All districts are responsible for carrying out four standard functions: membership, finance, program, and unit service.
The purpose of district meetings is to build momentum, provide group continuity, ensure good coordination, and to make specific assignments to committee members. The district commissioner reports on the special needs of units and requests the help of operating committees to meet those needs. To help coordinate efforts, many districts devote a major portion of district meeting time to simultaneous meetings of each of the operating committees (membership, finance, camping, etc.). This is also a time-efficient meeting pattern for busy district volunteers. The district chairman, district commissioner, and district executive sit in where needed. All Scouters reassemble. Each operating committee chair reports on two items: (1) What was accomplished in the past month? (2) What plans do they have for accomplishing during the next month? To help build commitment, the district meeting also provides moments of fellowship and inspiration.
