National Lodge Advisers Training Seminar
Thursday, 01 July 2010 22:46
The National Lodge Adviser Training Seminar (NLATS) is a weekend conference focusing on the skills and attributes of effective lodge advisers. It is intended primarily to enhance an adviser's knowledge of and connectivity with the OA's strategic plan, program and resources, while emphasizing personal skills that are essential to the development of effective youth leadership and ultimately the OA's service to the council.
The National Lodge Adviser Training Seminar (NLATS) is a brand new training program. This is the second time the seminar is being presented in the Northeast Region. It has been timed to coincide with the National Leadership Seminar also taking place at Alpine that same weekend. The NLATS is limited to 40 participants. For this seminar no more than two participants should register from any council. The course is designed for one-time participation. Repeat participation is not encouraged.
Who Should Attend?
It is recommended that participants be lodge advisers or staff advisers and those with lodge adviser potential, as approved by the local council Scout executive. Prior completion of a Lodge Leader Development Program and the National Leadership Seminar are desirable. The NLATS is an intensive experience in learning about the nature of lodge program, delivery of service to the council, and development of youth leadership necessary to both. While it is designed to be fun, the course is mentally challenging as well. Participants should be open to learning and prepared to actively engage in an invigorating weekend.
