Your "equal" at the Area level, Senior Jim, is the Area President.
You can also call the Regional President/National Vice-President of
the Region (Northeast) as well.
At all levels within the BSA there is a volunteer chair or President.
Shame on your Area Executive in NOT telling you this... as the
President of your local Council, you have the RIGHT to know who's out
there doing the "approval" of your Scout Executive's "report card" (it
MUST be signed by a volunteer, your Area President).

I sure hope it's sooner than later. Otherwise, we will be all talking
with our children, whom will be communicating with each other by
vidphone over the Grand Net talking about sports and school.
