Here is where we stand at the end of last week (October 5 - 9):
We have received $250,930 of the budgeted revenue of $322,930 (78% of goal reached)
Additionally, we have received an additional $48,521 to cover the $59,351 revenue shortfall (82% of goal reached).
Each week we exceed revenue projections or are below budget in expense projections, we as a council move closer to achieving the year end goal. Thank you for your help and continued support of our local Scouts.
On October 15 & 16, our council Key 3 (Council President, Council Commissioner & Assistant Scout Executive) attended the annual Area 7 Council Leadership Meeting. During that meeting, we reviewed and signed an updated transitional charter letter that will be in effect for the remainder of 2015 and through the end of 2016. It details the benchmarks and expectations our council must meet in order to remain a standalone council. The two primary focus points are financial stability and executive board development and engagement. We are committed to making this council successful as we move forward. Next week, I would like to present to you, what I believe needs to happen to continue our journey and specifically how you and your Scout unit can help. We do NEED your Scout unit’s help to be successful, next week, I will outline how to get engaged.
Thank you for all you do for Scouting and the Scouts we are privileged to serve.
