2016 Western Region Chief

Lodge Charter

It's that time of year again! The 2013 Lodge Charter Renewal Application is now available online from the Western Region Resources for Lodges section. Directions on how to use the 2013 Lodge Charter Renewal Application are a part of the Lodge Charter Renewal Kit mailed out to Lodges and can also be found online.

Remember you need to fill this out and submit electronically, as well as print and send with signatures and check.

We strongly suggest you get your Charter started today. Every year several lodges wait until December 15th (or later) and then discover the council office is closed until after the 1st of the year. As a result neither a signature nor a check can be secured and remember, checks often take two weeks (or more) to process from the time they are requested. Don't delay!

Let's see to it that all of the Western Region lodges submit their paperwork before the other regions and make sure they remember that WEST IS BEST!

Western Region's Journey to Excellence Guidebook

Brothers of the Western Region,WestIsBest

In concurrence with the change from Quality Lodge to Journey to Excellence, the Western Region started an initiative to create a guidebook to help our lodges in the West to successfully navigate the waters of the daunting JTE requirements.

A regional committee, chaired by Section W6W chief Sam Bellomy, set out to develop a guidebook that will specifically aid the lodges of the West, which we know are much different from the rest of the nation. We understand that the lodges of the West have different issues and concerns than the lodges of the other regions, and therefore wanted to create a replacement for the Western Region's Quality Lodge Handbook.

I am proud to announce the completion of this initiative, and the release of the new guidebook!

The First Edition of the Western Region Journey to Excellence Guidebook and the Western Region Backdating Calendar is available now.
