Recently elected and appointed Scouts area invited to attend Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops training on Saturday, May 30th, from 1 – 4 pm. Completion of ILST entitles Scouts to wear the “Trained” badge while they are in the position for which they are trained, and is a prerequisite for more advanced Boy Scout leadership classes. It is not required for service in a position of responsibility, but is recommended and is useful. See the new page on the troop website at http://www.troop42omaha.org/troop-leadership/ to be in the know about who has which duty.
