Welcome to the Arapahoe District
November Roundtable: Three Things Due
Every November we request that all units in the Arapahoe District turn in three things.

Tell us when your 2014 Investment in Character presentation date is here.

Investment in Character
It is time to tell us your plans for your 2014 Investment in Character presentation. Please let us know when we could come to your Pack Blue and Gold or Troop Court of Honor between December and March. We thank you for letting us share the story of scouting and for your personal support of scouting in our community.
Fall Join Nights
Hundreds of kids have been waiting all summer to join your pack! The Arapahoe District would like to help make your fall Roundup the most successful that it can be. It is time to invite new youth and adult volunteers to join your unit.
By filling out and submitting the Join Night Information form, the District membership team will prepare flyers for you, provide stickers, yard signs, buddy cards, and other materials for you. Neatness counts on this form. What you type in will be what you see on your materials. We can also provide assistance running your join scouting night! All packs need to submit their two (2) join night dates and school open house plan by July 30th for the first 3 months of the school year.
If you need assistance or more information, contact James Dockter, Scot Fuller, Tobin Truslow or their assistant JoLynne at 303.455.5522.
Use the most up-to-date method for entering your unit's advancement, including ranks, merit badges and other awards. Internet Advancement allows you to enter and submit advancement and run reports online directly to and from the council. Doing so ensures greater accuracy and faster submissions.
Review the Internet Advancement presentation to learn how you can take advantage of this great resource.
Journey to Excellence
Journey to Excellence is the new performance recognition program for Councils, Districts, and Units. This new program uses a balanced approach and key performance indicators to measure performance versus process, encourage and reward success, and achieve the mission. This form is due at the November roundtable. You will have time to make any adjustments through February 2014.
Here are the requirements of the corresponding unit types: Pack, Troop, Crew, and Team.
For more information about this program or for any questions, please contact your commissioner.
