Welcome to Pack 328

Following incorporation in 1910, the BSA was granted a charter by Congress in 1916 to make its program available through community-based organizations. Each unit (Cub Scout pack, Boy Scout troop, Varsity Scout team, Sea Scout ship, or Venturing crew) are chartered by organizations with goals compatible with the BSA purpose of providing boys, girls, and young adults with an effective program designed to instill desirable qualities of character, develop personal fitness, and train youth in the responsibilities of participating citizenship. Local councils are chartered to provide service to help chartered organizations be continuously successful in their use of the Scouting program. The four major functions for program delivery are membership/relationships (making Scouting available to all youth), finance (providing adequate funds), program (maintaining standards and policies), and unit service(serving organizations that use the Scouting program).

As you would expect for any organization providing support services to thousands of units serving millions of youths, there is a governance hierarchy. The National Council is divided into four regions, each of which have several areas which support the approximately 300 local councils, each of which implements programs through districts supporting individual units. In the Longhorn Council (LHC), there are 17 districts supporting XXXX units in XXX counties comprising the areas West and South of Dallas stretching from Oklahoma border to South of Waco. The “key 3” leaders for the LHC and each district are the President/Chairman (who lead board and committee meetings), the Commissioner (who ensures unit service), and the professional Scout Executive. As teammates, the over XXXXX volunteers and XX professional staff serve over XXXXX youth members.
