If you are a District volunteer (Merit Badge Counselors, Commissioners, District Committee Members, Lone Scout Counselors) and have not renewed your Youth Protection Training by Thursday, June 27th you will be dropped from the District Roster.
If you are unsure about your YPT status, please contact our District Executive, Sandra by text or phone at 406-282-1129
I’m sorry that I do not have individual email addresses for all of our Montana Commissioners – so this notice falls to you to spread the word.
There are two opportunities for Commissioner Training this month! Please take advantage of these – attend yourself if possible, and urge others to attend.
1) For those who are near to Nu-Ooh-Ska District, they are planning a Commissioner Basic Training (only) on Saturday, October 20th. This is being held at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, 222 2nd Ave. So., Shelby. Time is 9:00 a.m. Either bring your own lunch, or join into group ordering for minimal cost. [turn West off Main St. in Shelby, underneath the O’Hare Mansion sign, driving uphill. The Church is a block off main.]
2) A full College of Commissioner Science is one week later, on Saturday, October 27th in Great Falls. Training is available at all levels in the College, from Basic through Doctorate, and including special courses for District Commissioners and Roundtable Commissioners. Deadline for sign-up is Oct. 12th (this coming Friday). The College will be held at the First Congregational UCC / Christ United Methodist Church, 2900 9th Ave. So., Great Falls [Coming from East or West on 10th Ave. South, turn at 29th St. and go north, go past Dairy Queen and the church is the next building on the right. It takes up the entire north half of the block between 29th and 30th streets.] Please see the registration forms and information on the Montana Council website at http://www.montanabsa.org/
Help get the word out to those who need the training. Our Commissioners are becoming extremely important to the success of each Unit and District, and our Council is doing its best to provide the help and information that caring Commissioners need.
