Roundtables, our Monthly Leaders’ Meeting, rotate to various locations throughout the Muncie Community.
Sign up to receive district email and information to keep things top of mind! This is a mailing list so encourage parents, den leaders, youth, neighbors, anyone who is interested in receiving information from the district to sign up to get the most up to date information.
Friends of Scouting
Each year we ask units to hold a Family Friends of Scouting presentation so we can spread the word to families about the great things we do in this program, and explain how it is funded. Most presentations are done in the January – April timeframe, during a court of honor or pack meeting. Please contact our FOS chair Terri Sanders or call the Muncie Scout Office at 765-288-0223 x2301 to schedule your presentation.
New Youth Protection Training
The National Council has released a new Youth Protection Training for all leaders that goes more in-depth on protecting the youth in our programs. As part of this new training rollout all new and currently registered leaders, regardless of current youth protection status, will need to take the new youth protection training.
The new youth protection training can be found at my.scouting.org.
Journey To Excellence
While many of you have already done this, every unit should turn in a JTE scorecard. Many of you have questions about the JTE (Journey To Excellence) form. The Scout Office can help you get the numbers you will need to complete this form and determine how you rank for Journey To Excellence. Please call at anytime during normal office hours with questions, or email Karen Goth and the information will be sent to you.
Each year, thousands of youth depend upon the money earned from unit fundraisers to attend summer camp, pay for annual registration or attend monthly activities. Each unit who participates in a money raising project that is not endorsed by the council, must submit a Unit Money-Earning Application at least two weeks before the proposed fundraiser to the Muncie Scout Service Center.
