2014 BSA Membership Fee Increased to $24
At the recent Top Hands meeting, it was announced that the 2014 BSA Membership Fee would increase from $15 to $24 annually. The Northwest Georgia Council does not receive any of this fee directly. Rather, it is the national membership registration fee. What do you as a Scout family get for $24 a year? Click the link below. It might surprise you!
2014 Training Opportunity Updates:
NYLT (National Youth Leadership Training) dates are going to shift again, to Fall 2014. Allan Gilreath has agreed to be the NYLT 2014 Course Director and has already begun assembling his core leadership. The decision to move the dates back into the Fall will allow more time for staff and course development as well as promotional efforts. We will publish the actual dates (2 3-day weekends) as soon as they are finalized.
WOOD BADGE 2014 has also had a date change. The first 3-day weekend will be Mar. 14-16, 2014 and the second 3-day weekend will be May 2-4, 2014. We are pleased to announce Kim Hulsey as the new Wood Badge 2014 Course Director. Kim is an experienced Scouter and longtime Scout trainer and will do an excellent job! Details and registration info will be posted soon. This training is for all adult leaders (Cub, Boy Scout, Venturing) who have completed their Basic training.
