2009 Scoutmasters’ Recognition Program – National Distinguished Scoutmasters

Troop 182 Scoutmaster Jose Lepervanche attended  the 2009 Scoutmaster’s Recognition Program during the BSA National Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida. He represented 52 scouts of Troop 182 as one of the 43 distinguish Scoutmasters from the US invited to this event.

The program included a business meeting and a focus group session where the Scoutmasters shared their best practices in guiding youth leaders in Boy Scout troops. Dr. Lepervanche shared his views about “Management practices in a large Boy Scouts troop” based on his experience of three years as Scoutmaster of Troop 182.

Dr. Lepervanche and his wife Flor attended different events and exhibitions with more than 1500 scout professionals and volunteers. They were invited to participate in the 2009 National Distinguished Scoutmasters Recognition Program. Scoutmasters from all the US were nominated by their Councils and only 43 were selected by the National Council. Florida was represented by one Scoutmaster from West Palm Beach and another from Jacksonville. They learned that our troops had active Eagle Scouts, First Class scouts, trained adults and scouts, good recruitment and retention, council, district, and OA participation, quality awards, service, active camping and outings, including summer camps, large committee, active parents, good charter organization support, good management practices, and leadership influence in our communities outside Scouting.

They were specially recognized in the Business Meeting, spouses had private tours and events to thank them for their support to the Scoutmasters. They worked in Focus Groups and had a private meeting with the Chief Scout Executive and National Council Commissioner.

It was a great honor and a huge challenge to represent Troop 182 during this recognition program. They had several meetings where they share best practices. During the Focus Groups they worked in several areas (recruitment, training, advancement, retention, and time management) to analyze current issues and to define solutions or methods that can be implemented in the troops. They made the commitment to work online in the focus groups for the next 12 to 18 months in order to present a report to the National Council. Dr. Lepervanche is part ot he “Time Management” focus group.
