Journey to Excellence Awards

"Scouting's Journey to Excellence" is the BSA's council performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units. It is basically a report card to measure your unit's performance, find out your strengths and weaknesses, recognize where your unit really stands out and encourage excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA!

Each adult volunteer who serves enjoys— and deserves — a heartfelt "Thank You" for a job well done.

Office Hours with the District Executive
Our District Executive, Matthew Graham, will be at Barnes and Noble in Goodyear almost every Thursday from 3:00pm to 6:00pm.  He will be in the cafe area to the right of the entrance.  He also is at the Council office most days at various hours.
 
If you have any questions about training, rechartering, frundraising or programming ideas for your unit or our district, or would just like to chat, be sure to come down and visit with Matthew! Please call his cell beforehand at 928-246-9376 to make sure he is hosting office hours that day, as he is sometimes caught up with unit visits, out in the field, or attending other meetings!
