The Scout Association's AGM

The Scout Association’s Annual General Meeting took place at the weekend. Delegates took the opportunity to reflect on the achievements of the past year and look forward to plans for 2015.

The Scout Association’s latest annual report was shared and can now be downloaded as a PDF.

Two videos were shown at the meeting. 14-18 tells the story of The Scout Association’s Vision through the eyes of an Explorer Scout.

The Spirit of Scouting explores the meaning of Robert Baden Powell’s words: 'The spirit of Scouting counts for more than anything else. It is about helpfulness, it is about cheerfulness, it is about doing the right thing at all costs.'

Both videos are available at scouts.org.uk/video to download and share locally. You can also view them at youtube.com/UKScoutAssociation.

The Scout Association’s Board of Trustees was confirmed at the meeting: Professor Sir Alan Craft, Wayne Bulpitt, Matt Hyde, Gordon Boyd, Sally Cantello, David Chapman, Nigel Hailey, Gareth Davies, Fiona Durrant, Carl Hankinson, Stuart Howells, John Kennedy, Stephen Lake, Zena Martin, Jake Myatt, Michael Rollinson, Sonika Sidhu, Colin Lammey and Ashley Russell.
