A letter from the President Elect
"I need YOU to be the next VP"
I would like to take this time to personally thank everyone for their efforts on the Area 5 Selection Call. I will try to fulfil the duties and obligations of the position of Area 5 Venturing President to the best of my abilities. I will strive to be a good servant leader. I will make mistakes, but I’ll try to make as few as possible. And hopefully with diverse and capable vice presidents from around area 5, we will form a team that will make the 2015-2016 term the best ever. We will do this through clear streams of communication, bi-monthly calls with all councils, a quarterly newsletter, a new and expanded resource section on our website containing PSA's and customizable fliers, by asking each council to share their best practices, and adding training videos for the new awards available to all councils and crews.
I would like to invite all Area 5 Venturing youth to apply for a vice president position. Send your application by May 16th telling what position you would prefer and why you believe you would be a good officer. I am hoping to have a committee member per vice president. So, the more applicants the better. I hope to have all selections made prior to the 2015 Rendezvous.
In addition, please send a list and any electronic information you may have on any venturing activity in your councils from now until May 31st of 2016 to
We are even accepting articles about Venturing activities for out upcoming newsletter.
Yours in Scouting,
