For the past eight months, a group of volunteers have been hard at work crafting a strategic plan for Scouting in South Jersey. That plan - called GSC2020 - outlines what Scouting ought to look like on January 1, 2020, and seeks to align the council behind achieving that vision. 

The council's executive board will vote on the plan November 28, 2016. Because GSC2020 will impact every family in the council, the strategic plan committee will be holding three open forum meetings to present the plan, and answer questions about what lays ahead.
