Message from BSA's National President
Have you heard the inaugural comments from our new President of the Boy Scouts of America? At the conclusion of the National Meeting of the BSA, our president, Mr. Robert Gates, shared some details of his Scouting background and his priorities for our organization during the next 2 years. If you listen to his remarks you will realize that the Order of the Arrow had a significant influence in his Scouting career.
A former Director of the CIA and United States Secretary of Defense, President Gates emphasized his strong belief that successful missions depend upon leaders in the field. A high-priority mission for the next 2 years will be the recruitment of more youth to all BSA programs, including Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts.
Give it some thought. What can you and your chapter do to help the units in your district become more successful in attracting new youth to the program? Remember, as Mikanakawans we “go to prepare a trail” for others. That trail begins with each new youth who becomes a Scout. Let’s do all we can to help more youth find the trail!
