Venturing Officers Associations Nomination

Deadline August 4, 2017  |  5:00 pm

The Venturing Officers Association is run by four youth officers. The officers take the lead in driving the council Venturing program and make it a great experience for both the youth and adults. The officers plan the council events (e.g., Venturing Challenge) and plan and run the Venturing Forums. The officers are elected each year at the Venturing Banquet before dinner. 

If you are interested in running for an office, or if you would like to nominate someone to run for an office, complete the nomination form.
