On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
Venturing Officers Association
Venturing Officers' Associations (VOAs) play an important role in the organizational structure of the Venturing program. Each region and area has a VOA and all councils and districts are encouraged to organize a VOA if they haven't done so already. VOAs support local councils and crews to grow membership through youth led and advisor supported communication, program, and administration.
The pages below provide information to help you establish or improve a VOA. Most of these pages are based on the Venturing Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) that outline the administration of a Venturing leadership structure at the national, region, and area tiers. The SOP can also be used as a minimum standard by and as a template for local councils that do not currently have a structure in place to meet this operational need. Local councils can also use the SOP as a base from which to build their own council Venturing operating procedures to meet local needs. Councils that have found success with other VOA procedures may continue to do so, but are encouraged to submit them to the national Youth Development team so that a library of practices can be shared with other councils. These can be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Have questions or need help starting a VOA? Please contact your Area Venturing President. Their contact information can be found at: http://www.crventuring.org/Leadership/Central_Region_Venturing_Officers_Association/Also read through the Venturing Officers Association Administration Guide
