2019 Program Preview and Council Calendar

Ozark District Leaders,


A successful Scouting program involves proper planning on many levels. Whether this is your first or your 25th year planning Scouting programs, there are many tools available to help you through this process.


For many years, units have been provided a program planning packet to at the Program Previews.  This year, in an attempt to get the planning information in the hands of as many leaders as possible, we are emailing the planning documents to ALL registered leaders.  If you missed yours or have an inactive email, click on the links below to get your packets.


2019-20 Council Calendar

2019-20 Planning Guide


The Council Calendar includes all district and council dates from September 2019-August 2020.  


The Planning Guide includes information on how to conduct your unit’s Annual Program Planning Conference and program information on many council and district activities. Please take note of a few important policies and procedures that are included as you plan your unit program.


Take the time during the early summer months to have your committee meet to plan the 2019 - 2020 program year calendar for your unit. By doing this planning early, your unit can be ready to kick off the new program year when school begins. You can provide parents with a copy of your unit calendar when they attend a joining event in your unit in September. This shows new families that your unit is organized and ready to offer an exciting adventure for their son. By doing this planning now, you also have an idea of what some of your unit costs for the year might be. This will help you plan your participation in the popcorn sale in the fall as you work to raise the needed funds to support your program.


Of course, at any time during your planning process you find yourself in need of assistance, contact your District Executive or your Unit Commissioner and they will be happy to help you.


Thank you for all you do to make Scouting work and the impact you are making on thousands of young people in your communities. Together, we are changing lives.
