Unit Leader Knots


Hello Fellow Scouters,

It is a wonderful time to be a Scout.

I welcome all of you to the rewarding experience of being an Adult Volunteer in the Silver Comet District of the Atlanta Area Council. One of my favorite things to inform everyone about is recognizing your service as an adult volunteer.

You have seen various people at Scouting events with all of those Square Knots over their left pocket. Now is the time to start working on some for you, and I will explain how to start this. There are several websites out there explaining the knots, but it is very difficult to find out what is current. The knots listed here are the current ones (Nov 2015). Cub Scout Den Leaders used to have a different knot for each level. Now, there is one knot, but attachments show the different types of dens.

 Almost all the knots for adult leaders are fillable .PDF documents. All you need to do is fill out the appropriate form, print it out, and get the appropriate signatures on the bottom of the application. When this has been completed, the form should be brought to the monthly Round Table meeting and given to our District Chair.

 Information will be verified before being processed.

 There are requirements that you attend at least four of our Round Table Sessions held on the second Thursday each month (check our website District Calendar to confirm times and location). These start with a meet and greet at 7pm and have lots of information that is passed out monthly. Another option for this requirement is to attend a University of Scouting. AAC holds these once, and sometimes twice a year. Check the AAC Calendar for dates and registration details.

 If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

 Thank you.

 Yours in Scouting,

 Elden Morris
