    Ted Spagenberg Jr., Former SR-8b Section Adviser
    Intended Audience: All Arrowmen but especially older youth

    Description: While education, technical skills, knowledge and abilities are a huge part of any job or responsibility, it is often soft skills that will dictate how effective and successful you will be.

We must also make a genuine, well thought out plan for maximizing involvement of new members and their return for future events. This session will concentrate on proven techniques, new ideas and suggestion for involving new members and getting them to come to the next event after their induction. An involved member is an active member!

    Location: Henson Hall

  2. Creating Order in the Autobot Universe - Parliamentary Procedure 101Trainer: Dan Lessley

  1. Transforming from a Lodge Leader to Section Leader: So You Want to Work on the Section Level? – The Qualities and Expectations of Effective Section Officers, Committee Chairmen and Appointed Adults
    Trainer: Wade Hartley, Section Adviser

    Intended Audience: Youth who intend to run for section office, or youth/adults who wish to be considered for appointed positions on the section level
    Description: Serving as a Section officer or as an appointed member of the Council of Chiefs is much more than simply holding a position. The expectations are greater than those of lodge leaders and the personal dedication and work ethic of those seeking these positions must be high. Seeking a position must not be a spur of the moment decision and should only be considered after much thoughtful reflection and discussion with all involved. This session will explain exactly what the minimal expectations for each position are, and the standards that those holding those offices will be held to. Any youth who wishes to run for Section office, or any youth or adult who would like to be considered for appointment to a committee leadership position should attend.
