May 23rd Town Hall Meeting; Financial Reports Released


Dear Friends in Scouting,

 

On May 5th, the Study Group Recommendations were submitted to the Executive and Advisory Boards for review. It is important that you also have the financial information from Lincoln Trails Council and Prairielands Council to review along with the recommendations prior to the next meeting on May 23rd.  

 

The first attachments include the 2015 Audit from Lincoln Trails conducted by Kemper CPA Group, the same firm that audits Prairielands. Also included is the 2015 Audit for Prairielands. The Audit is listed as a Draft but was approved by the Audit Committee on May 10th.

 

In addition there are trend lines for both councils including balance sheet information from 2009 to 2015 for Lincoln Trails and 2010 to 2015 for Prairielands in addition to income statement information from 2011 to 2015 for Lincoln Trails and 2010 to 2015 for Prairielands.

 

Please note a vote is scheduled at the Board Meeting on May 23 to decide if we will take the question of consolidation to a full corporation vote which would include Board Members and Chartering Organization Representatives. On May 23 you are invited to attend a second Town Hall at New Horizon Methodist Church; it will be held from 6-8PM. 

Please submit any other questions before by emailing any of us below.

Shared Services Study Reports Available


NOTE: The correct version of the PDF containing the committee reports is 15 pages long. If your PDF from the e-mail blast has only nine pages then it is missing two sections, and you may want to download the correct version here or from the link in this post.

 

Dear Friends in Scouting,

 

On May 2nd Prairielands Council conducted a Town Hall meeting to discuss the recommendations presented by the Shared Services Study Group regarding the potential collaboration between Prairielands and Lincoln Trails.

 

Thank you to those who attended either in person or by phone. We appreciate your feedback.   

Unfortunately, the individual sub-committee recommendations were not made available in advance for people to review and draw their own conclusions. As Council President, I would like to extend my heart-felt apology that this information was not provided in advance. I know that Gabrielle Martin and Mike Potts who helped lead the discussion share in this apology.

 

So allow us to rebuild this relationship by addressing that omission.

First, a summary of sub-committee recommendations is attached and will also be available on the council website. These committees were made up of volunteers from both Councils. Please review the reports and contact us with any questions.

 

Secondly, the vote scheduled for May 23 is NOT a vote to consolidate. It is a vote on whether to continue in the process by taking the question of consolidation to a full corporation vote which would include Board Members and Chartering Organization Representatives.

 

Given the general tenor of the meeting on Monday night, we would like a chance to discuss this with you again. Our primary goal with these is to be as completely transparent as possible.

So, on May 23 you are invited to attend a second Town Hall at New Horizon Methodist Church; it will be held from 6-8PM.  With all the information in the reports attached, we will be able to discuss the committee recommendations.  

 

This meeting will also be conducted online so that people may see slides and submit questions online.

 

Please submit any other questions before by emailing any of us below.

Questions may be directed to:

Kyle Kietzmann/Council President  kkietzmann@bellracing.com
