I believe the role of voting member would be well served by a Scouter with a wide variety of Scouting experiences. Someone who has demonstrated leadership skills, in building effective teams and motivating the team to develop strategic direction to engage more youth to get out and explore the world. Having been actively involved in Scouts Canada at various levels I demonstrate a strong knowledge of its principles, objectives, programs and the Canadian Path.
I have been a member of scouting since I first joined as a Cub Scout in 1970. Leadership roles have included Section Scouter for Cubs, Venturers and Rovers, District President, Area Commissioner, various training teams, webmaster for Whitby and White Pine, and dozens of international Scouting trips.
Through my volunteer roles with Scouts Canada and other service organizations I have demonstrated leadership experience. I have served in a variety of capacities from ground level hands on program delivery to volunteer management and as a director on many boards. Through these opportunities I have had experience of developing teams from volunteer memberships, developing strategic direction and measurables, setting plans in action, liaising with support staff and reporting to boards and membership.
I am intrigued with the opportunity to hold town hall meetings to poll our adult and youth leaders on how to make Scouting a better experience as we adapt the program to suit today’s society and needs.
I am up for the challenge and would love the opportunity to work with Scouts Canada’s White Pine Team to represent you at the National level as a voting member.
