I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in the San Antonio
meeting this past May. It was one of the best organized meetings I've
I participated in the Venturing Committee Meeting, the Venturing
Workshop (introducing the new division & its programs) and was very
positively impressed. The Boy Scouting Enhancement workshop was also
very well done.
For a capsule article, I believe the announcement in Scouting magazine
(9/8/98) is very well written and to the point. I believe this new
Venturing Division of BSA will be a very positive influence and benefit
to the overall BSA movement.
There are bound to be some minor glitches along the way as it is
introduced to the national and council personnel and while they make the
necessary adaptations. But, these glitches will be very short-lived,
minor irritations. We are going to have a very positive future.
The new BSA logo is also very good.
BSA is bringing some very big guns in the advertising and promotional
world to work with us at all levels. The first emphasis will be on the
Cub Scout area, but we will all benefit if we can only stay positive and
focus on the future -- what's ahead of us -- and not on the past.
