I have served as volunteer president and treasurer of this non-profit since June 2011. It has made great strides in reviewing mission/goals, setting up sound financial reporting procedures, and establishing strong communication to the amateur radio and Scouting communities. Donations have begun to arrive to support its primary function of communicating and supporting Radio Scouting in the USA. It's key annual event, Jamboree on the Air, held the third weekend of October, saw significantly improved participation in 2012. It's National Scout Jamboree operation is set for July 2013 with several major sponsors already signed up to provide equipment. You can't go wrong in supporting this organization with it's all volunteer staff allowing every dollar to have a direct impact on Radio Scouting.
