A reminder that our District AGM is coming up on the 27th June - Please also find attached a plea from the Chair for nominees to the District Executive Committee
Please share this around your groups to make sure everyone receives it
Your District Needs You! The last two years has seen consistent growth in membership across the district and an ever-increasing range of activities being offered to young people.
Now is your opportunity to help us continue to develop Scouting in Dartford District.
By virtue of the fact that you are a member or associate member of the Scouting organisation you are eligible to stand as (or nominate someone to stand) as a member of the District Scout Executive Committee.
We are looking to elect two Executive Committee Members to serve for a year until June 2017 in addition to two people nominated by our District Commissioner
All members of the District Executive become Charity Trustees and meet to support the District Commissioner and Scout Groups, promote the development of safe scouting, appoint new Explorer units, raise funds and administer the District’s finances, appoint sub-committees where required and attend to the District’s governance.
The Executive meets approximately 6 times a year. It is not a uniformed role and you do not need any previous experience. In line with the National Association’s aims we do seek for some nominees to represent the young people in our movement and therefore particularly welcome nominations of adults aged between 18 and 25.
This letter is to invite you to stand for election yourself or to nominate another member of the Council (with their agreement) that you believe will add value to the District and carry out the role above effectively. The election happens at the Annual General Meeting which will be on Monday 27th June 2016.
