Committee Member

Committee Members

Each district committee oversees different aspects of running and delivering the Scouting program to the district. We are always in need of adult volunteers to assist in each committee.

A committee member commitment is generally for a year, the district membership runs for a calendar year beginning in January.

There are also opportunities for short term commitments to help coordinate an event. If you enjoy helping out with a specific event like Pinewood Derby, Fishing Derby, Cuborees, Camporees, etc. Consider signing up to volunteer to make any one of our district-wide youth events a success.
