HOWDY! From The District Chair!
My name is David Sweeney and I'm very honored to serve as your District Chair this year. My sole job is to help the district be the best that it can be. To that end, I've put together some specific goals for this year to help take us to the next level. I've been a volunteer in our district for more than 20 years in a variety of jobs including unit leadership in Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturing, unit commissioner, day camp chair, FOS chair, and district vice chair.
I've noticed that the most important thing that our district needs is better communication, not only between the council, district and units but also between units. To help with this, we've put together a better website and a group of email listservs that split our volunteers into different kinds of leaders. If you are a leader in the district, chances are you are a member of one or more of these lists. But in addition to using these lists to get information out, you can now post information to your colleagues. For example, if you are Cubmaster, you can have a conversation with your fellow district Cubmasters by sending an email to email@example.com. Only members of your list (and the district committee) can post, so you'll never get spam from these lists. For a comprehensive list of addresses, see our communications page.
You'll also appreciate the new district contacts page that lists the contact information for all of the district volunteers. This is a great resource to find out information. In the spirit of Scouting, I serve you, the members of our Arrowmoon District. If there is anything I can do for you, answer, or help you with, please contact me at (979) 492-9598 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours In Service,
