One of the most frequently asked questions at roundtable tends to be about insurance ~ who carries it and what it covers.
It’s hard to search on the web for this information because it is very likely that different councils may have different coverages or plans.
My own units are encountering an increasing number of destinations who are asking us what our insurance coverage is before we even leave home, so I recently had the opportunity to pull out and digitize the information that was provided to all unit leaders during last year’s rechartering process. I’m posting it to the website to make it easier for units that need to get a digital copy for outings, or because they have questions, to be able to find that information.
Please note that this information is subject to potential change and annual renewal; please direct questions to Robert Garrett at the Milwaukee Service Center.
The Trainer’s EDGE replaces the Trainer Development Conference (BSA 500) as the required train?the?trainer course for Wood Badge and NYLT staffs. The purpose of the Trainer’s EDGE course is to provide and help develop the platform skills of a trainer. It is meant to supplement the practice offered through Wood Badge and NYLT staff development, with a focus on the participant, while raising the level of skill a trainer brings to the staff experience. Only practice can polish these skills, but this course is intended to “train the trainer” on behaviors and resources while offering hands?on experience in methods and media.
Even if you’re not on Wood Badge or NYLT staff, you are invited to take part in Trainer’s EDGE on January 18th, 2014. It is appropriate for Roundtable Commissioners, Camp Staff, Council Training Volunteers and Unit Trainers as well. Both youth and adults are welcome to attend.
Early bird signups end January 10th – the course is just $10, and includes a pizza lunch! (What a DEAL!) This is a GREAT opportunity, so don’t miss it!
