  1. I am stating that the DAC chair intentionally and willfully delayed an eagle project for over 10 months without any reason other than the ones he invented. The DAC chair directed his committee to refer any requests, whether from the scout or from anyone else, to him. But, he intentionally did not return any communication attempts from the scout. He admits this behavior. The SE has acknowleged this was very wrong, and eluded that he did abuse the scout. I am working with both district and council to fix problems that may arise in the future.

The DAC had an open offer to do this at roundtable 3. The project was rejected without any reasons 4. Similar, but different, projects have been done at this park 5. The DAC, during my meetings with them, stated "
  5. I believe our district advancement committee is abusing scouts. scout X submitted his initial write-up back in Oct 08. He did not recieve any response. He sent emails, left phone messages, etc. I got involved about December. Meeting with the committee at roundtable to try to work through it. They were very distant. They made statements along the lines of "your project will not be approved" but did not give any reason.
