NLS at Camp Beckwith

This past weekend our chief Alex and secretary Matt had a great experience staffing the last National Leadership Seminar (NLS) for the year. They said that they had a blast working with the Southern Region Chief Wesley Seaman, National Chief Nick Dannemiller, and other great staff to put on a great program. Both Alex and Matt taught classes and served as table guides for the event. Also Greg and Larry served on NLATS staff. We are very proud of Matt, Alex, and those from SR-9 that attended and that could represent our section in such a great way.

The event will be American Indian activity focused and will offer Arrowmen a hands on approach to the American Indian aspects of our Order. SWAG will feature a program that offers “make and take” style training classes as well as instructional classes. Our winter Council of Chiefs meeting will be held at SWAG during the day on Saturday.
