2014 - 2015 Atlanta Area Council Planning Guide

Posted on May 19 2014 - 9:45am

On Saturday, April 24th, the first annual AAC Program Kick-off was held at the Vounteer Service Center.  This event was designed to assist unit leaders in planning their own calendars for the upcoming year.

Button Gwinnett was well represented, but for those that were unable to attend, attached is the final edition of the booklet that was used during the presentations.  This version includes live links to everything from camp information, training events embedded in monthly calendars, fundraising and AAC ad sponsors.  This guide is the most comprehensive planning document ever produced by the Council and should help the units in our District plan and organize events for their Scouts as well as training opportunities for their adults.

Please take the time to review this guide in it's entirety and use it as needed.  There is also a link in the Menu column of this website.
