    • Wood badge is now about leadership management team development whether you like it or not. I think it is a good course so long as you're not expecting the Scout craft course. Most of the Scout crafts has been moved to introduction to outdoor leadership skills. Is there enough time in that course to cover everything? No. Should BSA introduce a intense scoutcraft course for adults? Maybe. Will enough adults take it? I have my doubts considering we can't get them i o l s for 24 hours when it is basic training. For more Scouts skill courses I would suggest requesting them at your local University of scouting. Most councils have that once a year, a day-long training for adults.  
    • That doesn't sound so bad. Between the proclivity towards promiscuity, antipathy towards knives, and uninspiring coed programs of other countries...
    • That's an odd statement (about WOSM being the grantor of a license for scouting). I'm sure WOSM would like things to be that way, but as Baden-Powell put it many years ago, "Scouting is a movement, not an organization." There are many scouting and guiding associations that have nothing to do with WOSM or WAGGGS.
    • Mostly we generate our own information: it's a volunteer that plans and manages the district camporee, another volunteer that compiles the newsletter, and yet another that runs the show at round table and Scouting for Food. Whenever there are training opportunities coming from outside the district, it's a district volunteer making the announcement. In all likelihood, our DE died months ago.
    • Saltface....Yes Professionals should be providing units customer service, communication, quality programs and innovation, working with their units and taking accountability for their metrics.  WE are the customers...not the other way around.   Sounds like your District volunteers may be receiving some of these but where do they get current information..likely from the DE.
