Fwd: Journey to Excellence and Planning Resources

Cross Timbers Scouters,

We need your help with several items by the May 10th Roundtable.

1)            Membership- Unit Inventories and Voice of the Scout E-mail updates. The District Membership Committee is asking unit leaders to send a listing of the adults and youth that are currently active with the units. Membership Inventories are conducted in the Spring to checked the charter process and prepare for Summer Camp. Also mark your calendars for a Membership Inventory in October to prepare for Unit Recharters. Inventories can be given to an Unit Commissioner, District Executive or E-mailed to 662crosstimbers@bsamail.org. A separate part is the Voice of the Scout E-mail update. The national System will be sending out surveys' to ask for feedback on scouting. To do this unit leaders are being asked to update e-mail address for members in the unit. Please see the attached letter explaining the Voice of the Scout Program.
2)            Journey to Excellence Planning- Has your unit Looked at the 2012 Unit Journey to Excellence Program and planned for  Gold this year. For additional information please go to www.scouting.org/jte. Also take a look at the unit planning guides that can be found http://scouting.org/scoutsource/Membership/New_Units.aspx. Let any district representative know if you have an area of concern that the you may need help on.
3)            Advancement- Units are being encouraged to use the internet advancement system. If you haven't started using this system please check it out. If you need your ID number please e-mail MIkel Shelton (mikel@smscpatx.com) or Kelsey 662crosstimbers@bsamail.org. The Cross Timbers District has several units that currently show as not having any advancement yet this year. If you are one of those units the an Advancement Committee Member or the District Executive will be contacting your unit.
4)            Service Hours- With Journey to Excellence we are asking all units to submit their Service hours through the Journey to Excellence site. The same ID number used with Internet Advancement is used to set up the Service Hour Account.
5)            Unit Leader Training- The Cross Timber Training Committee would like to what training is need in your Unit and who Needs this Training. This would be a great thing to include with the unit Inventory.

Yours in Scouting
