As most of you should already be aware there is to be a Scouters Council meeting next Tuesday 21st June at Onchan Scout HQ at 7:00 pm.
The main purpose of this meeting is to select 4-6 volunteers to represent the uniformed sections on the Island Executive. It is important that the Executive knows what the leaders and young people want for the future of Scouting on the Isle of Man so it would be helpful, although not essential, for as many sections as possible to be represented. What is essential is that one of the selected representatives is aged between 18 and 25.
If you, or anyone you are aware of, would like to put their name forward but cannot attend the meeting please make sure that I or another person who is going knows. If more people put their names forward than are required there may need to be a vote so all nominees should please ensure that they have a nominator and a seconder to support their nomination.
The second reason for the meeting is to give an opportunity for all leaders to come together to share their ideas and thoughts for the future of scouting ahead of the Annual General Meeting on 13th July so that any appropriate contributions can also be raised in that forum and beyond.
All contributions are welcome so please distribute this email to everyone in your groups and sections and encourage as many leaders as possible to attend including, in particular, your young 18-25 leaders.
Executive meetings are bi-monthly.
