Unit District Liaison Needed – Breukelen District

My name is John Farrell, Scoutmaster of Troop 76 in Bergen Beach / Mill Basin, Brooklyn, and the Council Activities Committee Chair.  As a representative of our district, Breukelen, I am reaching out to you today as the Breukelin District Nominating Committee Chairman.

Today, I am asking to have a better communications channel between your individual units and the district. I’d like you to delegate someone from your unit to be your district liaison. It could be yourself, but if you were looking to have a parent or another leader/unit committee member step up and start doing a little more… this might be perfect for them.

We would love to hear from you.  The committee is here to help you grow and strengthen your units through shared ideas, training, and collaboration, as well as to plan new, fun programs and events that all our youth want to participate in.

Our committee’s responsibility is to search out and present a slate for members at large, District Chair and District Vice Chair and make a recommendation to the council for the District Commissioner.  Voting on these recommendations at the annual meeting is by the current members at large and our units’ Chartered Organization Representatives, who are the only voting members of the District.

Members at large support the four functions of a District: Membership/Relationships, Finance, Program, and Unit Service.

Suggestions for members at lodge or district chair must be in writing or via email, to myself who will present them to the nominating committee.  I can be reached at Scoutmasterbooboo@gmail.com or at 1554 East 66th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11234. Please submit your recommendations by April 10th, 2020.

We will have the Breukelen Annual Meeting on Wednesday May 21st, 2020 at MCU park located at 1904 Surf Ave, Brooklyn, NY. Program will start at 6:00 PM. On the behalf of the nominating committee members and the Brooklyn Council, I want to invite you to come down.

Scouting in Brooklyn is changing.  We need your assistance in helping it change for the better.
