The Mysterious George Meany Award

The Mysterious George Meany Award

The mysterious George Meany Award is uncovered from its mystery. National recognition was provided by the AFL-CIO executive council. It is to recognize scout leaders that are union members and have given significant contributions (not money) to the youth in their community. This is very exclusive as there is only one awarded each year. If there is no suitable candidate there is no award, and the award is never given posthumously.

How to be a Better Scout Leader in 2023

How to be a Better Scout Leader in 2023

Volunteering to be the best scout leader you can be will always leave a legacy. Many scout leaders “pay it forward” through selfless service to others. Adult leaders must understand the level of their commitment to preventing burnout. Long or short-term leaders need to have a game plan. Developing a leadership team within the unit is critical to success. Adult leaders throughout the year should have activities that focus on the fellowship and teamwork of the leadership. Being recognized for their achievements has more significant when awarded in a leadership team.
