From a draft Table of organization I have seen change is coming to my older council in a BIG way.

 

No districts.  Organization is by program: cubs, Scouts, and "Teen Scouting."  The council now stretches over 100 miles end to end.

 

No roundtables.  The decision-meister has decided all could be learned at a RT can be learned on line.  Good thing given that centrally-located meetings would be a two-hour round trip away - in decent weather - now that districts are going away.

 

Also titles unknown to the Guide for Insignia - "Deputy Commissioners"

 

No FOS.  Massive emphasis on selling popcorn.

All to be announced shortly after district kickoffs.   :rolleyes:

 

Effective when ?

The Deputy Council Commissioner, Boy Scouting Program Support, has an Assistant Council Commissioner, Advancement.

 

Districts always acted by delegated authority from Councils.  Districts are optional in the Bylaws ("may")

 

There is also an ACC "Boy Scout Packs."  Probably just a mistake.

 

No Wood Badge Coordinator listed.

Trial run or are they the first to enact a BSA-wide change?

Sounds like a new manager wants his fiefdom to be operated his way, make his mark, leave his org in his image.  

Loss of face to face?  How is IOLS , WB, other training to be done?   Scouting is NOT an "online " activity.  It is an out in the woods activity, if you catch my drift.

 

I was a Deputy District Commissioner, a few years back, show you my patch if you like.   I was told it was a "specialized" Commish, mine was to be helping with new units, which I did.  Then I was "promoted" to Assistant  DC, and told the title of DDC was to be "retired" from the National lexicon.

 

Sorry for your angst, Tahawk.  Maybe they are trying to economize by eliminating underused DEs....   naw, couldn't happen.   The DEs will be made Assistant Chief Scout Executives, bet. 

 

Wait a bit.  They will feel the heat from the volunteers, the lack of "service" from the pro's and presto !  Eastern Service Area, Western Service Area, River Bend Service Area.....

 

See you on the trail.......

Our council has 3 districts and 2 DE's that share the duties of all three districts.

There's a reason why I don't always answer the phone, doorbell or comments on forums.  :)

Impossible ... how will the Emperor National maintain control without the bureaucracy?

There is no such word as "Webelo." 

The only proper singular of Webelos Scouts is ... WEBELOS SCOUT!

They lost control years back, they just haven't noticed it yet.
