Today we received word that the Southern Region Executive Board decided to allow our council to remain a standalone council avoiding reassignment of territory. This is a significant step forward for our council and the Colonial Virginia Council Executive Board that worked tirelessly each week over the past two months led this effort on behalf of our Scouts. The feedback and responses from surveys, emails, and meetings was valuable and much appreciated as it guided discussions of how to move forward.
So now that the decision has been made, what now? We will continue to work hard to regain trust, rebuild district and council volunteer structure and provide the critical program support services that units and chartered organizations need to assist in delivering a quality Scouting program. Our council must remain financially stable meeting our obligations moving forward and we must meet our 2016 financial plan objectives. Together, with your help, we will do just that.
