For those scouts at the First Class rank and above that need a leadership position for rank advancement, there will be interviews on 9/12/16 starting at 7:30pm (Koenig Center). Interviews will last about 10 minutes per position. The interviews will be conducted by the SPL and ASPLs. Scouts should interview for their first and second choice as we attempt to accommodate the large number of scouts that need positions. Scouts should attend in uniform and be able to articulate why they would be a good choice for the position they are interviewing for.

Troop leadership positions include: Patrol leader, troop guide, Order of the Arrow troop representative, den chief, scribe, librarian, historian, quartermaster, bugler, junior assistant Scoutmaster, chaplain aide, instructor, troop webmaster, or Leave No Trace trainer.

All scouts that need a position will receive one. Scouts must read and sign the troop's Leadership Position form which is available on the troop's website under forms. Scouts will not receive service time until the completed form is signed and turned in.
