The problem was that on 1 Jan 97 our district became the product of a merge
of two districts. At the same time, I was stepping into the District
Commissioner seat. To my amazement, only one district had a merit badge
counselor list, and it wasn't complete. The Advancement Chairman of the
district without the list was approached several times for a list, but was
basically laughed at. Other people even offered to do it if he could just
supply the MB counselor applications. He continued to resist. When I
became the DC, the DE and I found a new Advancement Chairman. Now you know
the circumstances of my actions.
Also, explain how my statement makes it sound like "troops have people they
are sending their scouts to who are not approved counselors." I said
nothing about our approval process at all.

Why did you go to all the troops? Should you not have gone to the District
Advancement Chairman who maintains a list of approved merit badge
counselors. Sounds to me that Troops have people they are sending their
scouts who are not approved counselors. Counselors, even for a Troop, must
still be registered through the District.
