Samoset District Names Announced

During the past month and a half, two email surveys were conducted with each registered volunteer and family in our Samoset programs to name our five Scout districts.  Here are the results:

Building a District Volunteer Structure

We are starting off the district structure with 6 volunteer positions. Each position is being created to provide functional service to the Scout units in the district and represent the district on the council committee. If you are interested in volunteering in one of these roles or would like to nominate someone to be considered for a position, please contact your district executive.

  • Ahdawagam - Eathan Zimmerman
  • Mushkodany - Phoenix Bise
  • Ojibwa – Phoenix Bise
  • Rib Mountain – Bob Jacoby
  • Northwoods – Kristin Tobin

Position descriptions are available for each position (listed below).  If you have an interest in volunteering in any of the above positions, please reach out to your district executive or assistant council commissioner to express your desire. We look forward to working with volunteers to increase community-based Scouting into further support and empower Scout units.
