The following groups sent regrets that they could not attend:
We'd love to hear from the following groups:
The following individuals were introduced as part of the incoming Area Management Team:
Fran Walker: DAC Training
Cindy St. Louis: DAC Community Relations
Anthony Jones: DAC Youth
Jake Strang: Area Webmaster
We also thanked the outgoing team for their service, and wished them good luck in their future Scouting adventures. We are still recruiting for some of the Area positions. If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please call me at 519 833 1142.
1. We had reports on the recent Scout/Venture & Beaver/Cub camps. Our area was well represented at both.
2. We discussed potential Area activities we could undertake in 2007-2008. It was decided that we would not attempt any fall activities this coming year, but would instead focus on Spring activities. Each group should bring their tentative Group Calendars to our first meeting in September, and we would discuss the following events (we likely won't do all of these, just decide which ones to do):
3. Rechartering forms and Financial Reports. If you have not already submitted your Group's Rechartering Forms and Group Financial Statements, please mail them to:
9739 10th Sideroad RR #2
4. Group Information Survey. Please find attached a survey requesting information about your Group and the sections you run. This information will help your Area Management Team to better serve you, as well as to direct inquiries we receive to the appropriate person. The survey will work best in Microsoft Word, but can also be opened in Word Pad, which comes with all Windows computers. If you have difficulties opening it, e-mail me back and I'll send you a PDF version. Responses can be e-mailed back, or mailed to the address above. I will also have a fax capability shortly. E-mail me if you would like the number, and I'll e-mail it back once I get it working :-).
5. 2006-2007 Registration Stickers. I have the stickers for any groups that haven't attended the last two meetings. I will mail those out once I receive your completed survey. Just to make sure I send it to the right place. Or e-mail me where you want it sent, if it's different than the contact info on the survey.
Next Meeting - Bring your Scouters!

That's all for now. I look forward to receiving your completed surveys. I'll publish an updated Group Directory as soon as a majority of the surveys have been returned. Also watch for information to start appearing on our Area web site: www.northernlightsarea.com.
Yours In Scouting,
