Council volunteers and professional staff members strengthen district committees and commissioner staffs with six major tasks—the six things they must do to make a volunteer system work. Attend this training to learn about all six.

The District Committee Training Workshop meets the basic training need of members of district committees and commissioner staffs. The workshop also results in a well-coordinated and dedicated group of Scouters committed to achieving the mission of the council and its districts. The workshop also helps initiate a working relationship between council and district volunteer leadership.

B: For all non-overnight events, a written request must be received by Volunteer Services at the Council Service Center at least fourteen (14) calendar days before the event. All requests for refunds must be made in writing and submitted by the person who paid for the original reservation. All refund requests received by the deadline will be processed by the Volunteer Services department, and will require approval by a member of the Council Management Staff. Volunteer Services will request this approval. In regards to Camp Fleischmann, refund requests received by the above deadlines, will be processed by Volunteer Services at the end of each session of camp. Cancellation requests received by the required deadline, as stated above, will result in a full refund minus a non-refundable, non-transferable fee of 15%. Refunds will be paid in the manner of funds received (check, CC, etc.) and mailed/ notified to the person who submitted the original reservation. The only exception to this policy is in the case of an emergency, injury, or illness. The exception request must be in writing and verified by a parent and/or guardian. The maximum available refund under this provision will be 50% of the total fee paid by the individual. The implementation of the policy was March 9, 2017. This policy supersedes all previously adopted or implied Refund Policies.
