As you are all aware, I was invited by Dan Wood to assume the role of Manager, International Scout Active Support Unit. I accepted the appointment and look forward to the challenges this will bring over the coming months and years. I understand that this created a change in the way we structure the ISASU and whilst I have never believed in change for the sake of it, sometimes it is good to take a fresh look at a reasonably successful formula and see if we can bring in new ideas that will help make it even more dynamic and successful than it already was.
Some of you may feel a bit intimidated by the introduction of a new structure. Yes, this will require some re thinking in how we approach the management of our International involvement but with the levels of experience most of you have, I am confident you will make a very positive contribution to Active Support going forward. I am asking that we look at how that work and knowledge might manifest itself into a development tool to inspire our younger members to take up the baton, follow in your footsteps and create a sustainable future for each of the SASU’s.
