This past weekend, NCAC’s Scout Executive and CEO Les Baron along with Field Director Phillip Duggins, attended the 184th Annual General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah. For 100 years, the LDS Church has been a fixture in supporting the Boy Scouts of America with Scouting regarded as “an extension of the home and Church and functions as an integral part of the Church’s activity program.”
The conference held this past weekend featured a series of two-hour sessions in which faith leaders provide the church members with both informative and inspirational messages.
We appreciate your interest and willingness to dedicate the time to visit the LDS General Conference. Understanding why Scouting is an essential tool in developing the character of our boys and young men is important to build a stronger relationship between the NCAC and the LDS stakes and wards within the council. The LDS are committed to doing our fair share in building the NCAC, and some of us try harder because we have caught the larger vision. Thank you, Don Ellison - LDS Representative to the Northeast (BSA) Region's Religious Relationships Committee
