Registrations are required - please confirm that those selected for an award and their guests will be attending the dinner.

Journey to Excellence
Journey to Excellence is the performance recognition program for Units, Districts and Councils. This program uses a balanced approach and key performance indicators to measure performance versus process, encourage and reward success, and achieve Scouting's mission.
Review and use the form early in the year as a way to plan and ensure you are offering and running an effective program. Complete and turn in the form by the end of December.
Here are the requirements of the corresponding unit types: pack, troop, crew, and team.
