District Treasurer Vacancy

Are you good at keeping track of money? If so, our District Treasurer’s role is just for you!

Scouting is run by adult volunteers, but not all have to go camping, play with glitter or cook on a wood fire and everything else that goes with working directly with young people in Scouting.

We know great adventures, and great Scouting, requires not only the fantastic leadership and instruction of our Leaders, but also supporters who make sure the admin is in place, the hot dogs are cooking and the money is available to pay our bills.

Deben District Scouts, is searching for a new treasurer to support the District Chairman and the District Executive Committee by overseeing the Districts Money.
