This is an opportunity for council staff and board volunteers to gather input on how we can continuously improve Scouting in the areas that we serve.  Its also a time for council staff and volunteers to share “hot topics” to keep you informed on what is occurring at Samoset Council and at the National BSA level.

Join us and meet our new Scout Executive, John Overland.  As Scout Executive, John is responsible for the overall program delivery of Scouting in our thirteen county area.  He coordinates the efforts of the volunteer Executive Board of Samoset Council.  He also works with the board and staff to implement the council strategic plan.  John is an Eagle Scout, Vigil member of the Order of the Arrow and Wood Badge trained professional Scouter with 23 years of experience.  He started his role on August 1.  John has been a den leader, Webelos leader, assistant Scoutmaster, merit badge counselor, crew advisor and institutional head.
