Election Leadership Request Form

Think about the following questions prior to clicking on the link

  1. What leadership position are you looking to run to be elected or appointed for?
  2. What will you get out of being a leader?
  3. What will the Troop get out of you being a leader?

Running the troop with more emphasis on the patrol method this year has triggered several changes to our structure.  There are many more positions within the organization to achieve rank advancement then in the past which are appointed by the PLC Leadership.  Once the Senior Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders and the Patrol Leaders have been elected they will be taking requests for appointed positions.  Please see the link below for detailed descriptions of each position.

Merit Badge Opportunities in DuPage County

Thanks to T41 volunteer parent Colleen Ahern (email Mrs. Ahern), she would like to spread the word to other parents and scouts that the below links describe many opportunities for your scouts to participate in merit badges within DuPage county, Bass Pro Shops and more.  Please read the below for details.  There are a couple scouts already registered for programs at Morton Arboretum, so it would be great to get a few to join and/or go together.
