Council Advisory Board
There are approximately 100 board members representing the twenty-five counties of the Lincoln Heritage Council. The board meets five times a year at noon, usually on the fourth Friday of those months. This date is subject to review annually to suit the greatest number of board members. The meetings are held at the Sam Swope Scout Center at noon and adjourn no later than 1:15 p.m.
· The board has the oversight responsibility of the council and acts on recommendations by the committees of the council that report at the board meetings.
The board reviews the financial condition of the council as well as the program developments that affect the youth members of the council.
There are no strict attendance requirements but it is hoped that board members would be in a position to attend at least half of the board meetings during the year. Even though a number of board members cannot meet these requirements, they still serve with much effectiveness because of their influence and administrative skills.
