If you haven’t been to one of the Montana Council’s past Annual Conventions, I’ll let you in on something that we’re honestly NOT trying to keep secret – they’re super fun!
Montana is a massive state. We don’t always get to meet in person to connect on topics and celebrate Scouting with our fellow Scouters across the council. Convention is our chance to gather around Scouting to celebrate successes, examine losses and find camaraderie within the organization.
Fairmont Hot Springs
April 28 – 30, 2023
This year marks the 10th annual Scouter Appreciation Night. The evening of revelry is our opportunity to praise the numerous outstanding volunteers who make our program great. We get to recognize districts for their growth, their community impact, and – most importantly – we celebrate the individuals who make Scouting happen.
Along with celebrating the fellowship in Scouting, the convention offers a wide range of educational sessions that help you enhance your skills, knowledge, and expertise.
Have questions about pack recruitment nights or recruiting in general? Or Scoutbook, Scouts with Disabilities, or questions about the finances of the council and districts? These are just a few of the nearly 20 breakout sessions we’ll have throughout Saturday.
Finally, Saturday night we recognize our 2023 class of Silver Beavers. As you know, the Silver Beaver Award is one we hold in the highest esteem in Montana Council. Recipients of this award have positively impacted the lives of youth through service given to the council. Those that are recognized are a sample of all of the outstanding work that goes on in the council on behalf of our volunteers. It is an honor to recognize fellow Scouters.
These are only a few reasons we hope you can attend. If I were to summarize convention in three words, I would say: Fellowship, Education and Celebration.
There is still time to register. We hope to see you at Convention!
Yours in Scouting,
Director of Marketing and Communication
