New District Executive

It is my pleasure to announce that Lane Schirado has been selected as the District Executive for Lake Agassiz district, effective October 1, 2019.

Lane’s primary responsibility will be fulfilling the mission of Scouting through volunteer engagement, membership recruitment, community and family fundraising, new unit sales, fiscal management of activity budgets and program support in the central portion of the district.

Lane is a graduate of University of North Dakota, majoring in Industrial Technology. He is an Eagle Scout from Moorhead, MN, has worked on Camp Staff as Aquatics Director and enjoys hockey.

Please join me in congratulating Lane as he works with Thomas Huether, and the Lake Agassiz district volunteers to grow the Scouting programs across the area.

Please bare with us as we work to restructure the duties that will be assigned to Lane upon his start date. We are looking to trying something new.

2019 Membership Growth Incentive

Our goal, as always, is to increase the number of young men and young women that we serve through our life-changing program.  We do transform our communities and have a powerful positive impact on the future!

To encourage unit leadership to pursue membership growth in all packs and troops this fall we are offering the following incentive:

  1. Existing Packs and Troops that achieve growth of + 5 or more youth members over their December 31, 2018, registered members will be given a voucher for one Pinewood Derby car (Packs) or 1 Merit Badge Pamphlet (Troops) for each registered youth member as of the deadline date of November 15, 2019. 
  2. New Packs or new Troops chartered after February 1, 2019, that achieve 10 or more youth members will be given a voucher for one Pinewood Derby car (Packs) or 1 Merit Badge Pamphlet (Troops) for each registered youth member as of the deadline date of November 15, 2019.
  3. All membership must be turned in, processed, and paid for no later than November 15, 2019, to count towards the incentive. 

For more details and to determine your membership goal speak with your District Executive.
