Nominations for the 2019 Silver Comet District Committee

Posted on Aug 29 2018 - 5:34pm

The District Nominating Committee is responsible for identifying candidates qualified and willing to serve as District Chairman, District Commissioner, and District Vice Chairman.
The Committee also identifies Scouters qualified and willing to serve as District Members-at-Large who will contribute to the many aspects of District Scouting including Finance, Membership, and all of the Program areas and Operating Committees.

It takes dedicated leadership to provide the excellent Scouting programs that are offered to our youth, and Silver Comet has many motivated and capable volunteers that would make ideal candidates to serve the District but we may not know who they are. Please help us by submitting their names for consideration.

Nominations will be accepted through October 18, 2018.
For details on submitting nominations, selection of individuals to fill the District positions, and the election of District Officers and Members go to our Silver Comet Nominating Committee webpage.
