Journey to Excellence (JTE) is a method to help units, districts and councils evaluate and recognize their proficiency in delivering the scouting program.
One contribution to the JTE calculations is advancement. BSA and council guidelines recommend that units submit all current rank advancements before the end of the year. Among other things, this allows recent advancements to be included in the JTE evaluation.
Currently the district and council are near the border between the silver and gold ratings. Submitting your unit’s advancement before the end of the year could make the difference between a gold and silver rating for our district.
Packs are also reminded to submit bobcat advancement as soon as possible for new scouts such as those who joined with Blast into Scouting.
Unit silver acorn nominations will be due February 19, 2016. All units are encouraged to submit nominations. For more information see the IPD 2016 Silver Acorn Nomination Form .
This year’s RoundTable meetings will be held the 2nd Wednesday of each month, at 7:00pm.
