droberts asked about time limits for submitting paperwork and being awarded
leadership knots. As District Training Chairman, it is my responsibility to
process this paperwork and request the certificates and knots. We have
never "added to the requirements" be setting a deadline for submitting
paperwork. If the leader has a signed card and training and tenure dates
can be verified, the award is ordered. I have people who have earned their
knots and didn't know they were available. Actually, they probably heard
about them at training, but they were so bombarded with information in the
training session that it just didn't stick, they lost their progress card
and didn't have anyone in their unit encouraging leadership awards. When
the light bulb finally comes on, we are more than happy to verify and order.
Hope this provides another prospective.
. . .and a good ole' Bobwhite, too. . .
