I am delighted to announce that Lorraine Ellis-Jordan is taking on a new position as Bronx Council Field Director.

In her new assignment, Lorraine will be giving direct leadership to the Bronx Council Board and Bronx Finance Campaign. Lorraine will also give leadership to the Bronx River District Membership Campaign.

Lorraine has successfully served as a Council staff member since 1997, having worked for six years in the Bronx before working with our Scoutreach team. In Lorraine’s tenure, she has started countless new Units, both in her time as a District Executive in the Bronx as well as a District Director in Scoutreach. She has also provided direct leadership as we have reorganized our Scoutreach department over the past two years. Lorraine has also been a Scouting volunteer in the Bronx since 1993 and has been an Assistant Cubmaster, Pack Committee Chair, Troop Committee Chair and has served as Scoutmaster for five years.

I look forward to the many accomplishments Lorraine will achieve as Field Director for the Bronx Council.

Outside of Scouting, Lorraine’s hobbies include Astor Little League- Challenger division, and special needs advocacy. Lorraine is a graduate of Syracuse University and recently obtained a Master’s degree in Non-Profit Leadership from Fordham University. Lorraine is a Bronx resident along with her husband Kenneth and their three sons, Keith and Kyle, both Eagle Scouts and Kieran, a Life Scout.  Please join me in congratulating Lorraine and her family on her new position.
