Re: VENTURING CREW MEETING & CREW COMMITTEE MEETING
- Good evening Tom.
VLSC stands for Venturing Leadership Skills Course. The Venturing
Leadership Skills Course was created to help teach young
adults/youth the attitudes and skills that good leaders
demonstrate. Practicing and mastering these skills will help enable
Venturers to have positive leadership experiences. VLSC is a series
of leadership modules divided into four catergories: Vision,
Communication, Organization and Synergism. Each module is
introduced by an activity and followed by reflection (post analysis
of what worked, what didn't, and how to make it better). This is
the course that several of the crew's young adults/youth attended at
Gerber Scout Camp from November 9-11.
Committee members are Chuck Stark, Bob Duplissis, Rick and Deb
Ronning and myself. We need more committee members too. Part of
the crew's rechartering process is the Membership Inventory. This
is where we make phone calls and/or personal visits to every crew
member and crew committee members to see if they are going to re-
register in the crew for another year. If they are not, then we
want to know how come. The adults will decide on what adult leader
position they wish to fill for the upcoming year. Right now there
are several MANDATORY adult leader positions that must be filled or
the crew will not be able to recharter. So, if there are any adults
in the club that wish to become more active with the youth then this
is a great way to do it. I encourage them to come to the Crew
