On behalf of the Shenandoah Area Council Executive Board, we would like to announce and congratulate Doug Band on his promotion to District Director.

Doug started with the Shenandoah Area Council in 2011.  He has had numerous accomplishments during his tenure and helped move Scouting forward.  Doug’s leadership and commitment helped lead the volunteers of Potomac district to receive the Bridgeforth trophy five years straight, managed to increase Friends of Scouting DCA dinners each year, had a membership growth in Mannahoac district for 2017, and increased district level volunteers across the Northern Service area.  He also started 4 Explorer post earning national recognition for law enforcement partnerships.     

Doug Band was selected and offered the position of District Director with the East Carolina Council headquartered out of Kinston, North Carolina.  This is great news and proof of the dedication, hard work, and success Doug has shown here.  This new position is with a larger council, more responsibilities, and his first step up within the Boy Scout organization as a mid-level manger.  Doug and Heather will be starting this new venture on July 16th, 2018.

All our best wishes and continued support go along with them and their family as Doug advances upward in the Boy Scouts of America.
