2017 National Scout Jamboree Staffing

Can you type a paragraph filling in the "Who, What, Where, When and Why's"
at the National Jamboree?  Do you want preferred PRESS Access to any area on
the Jamboree Grounds so you can cover the story? Can you write AND
Photograph too? (Photographs additional, not essential) Do you like using
Laptops, Smartphones, and have a "knack" for Technology? 

Then the 2017 National Scout Jamboree LEADERS UPDATE NEEDS YOU to join our
Staff. We are looking for 30+ YOUTH and ADULTS to assist us in our Mission
of being the #1 Resource for up to the minute Jamboree Information.

Here's HOW to find us on the National Scout Jamboree Online Application. On
your First Choice Jamboree Position, Click on the Drop Down Menu, it is
HUGE, go to the End of "Program" looking for specifically "Program - Leaders
Update1 Support Staff" and click on it. Then you will be submitted to us in
the first "draft" choices. 

If this interests you, please feel free to contact me, John M. Papp at
"Eaglemaster_3357 @Juno.Com" or here on Facebook via personal message. Or
you can contact our Chairman George Covert via Personal Message here on
Facebook also. 


From George:

 In 2017, I am again the Chairman, Leaders Update team for the BSA National
Jamboree.  The Leaders Update team, in short, is responsible for insuring
information from the jamboree leadership reaches the troop contingent
leadership during the jamboree and follows up with changes that occur.  My
team is stationed at every venue and base camp at the Summit. 

I have 33 positions for adult and youth registered Scouters.  I am looking
for solid registered scouters of troops and venture crews that would like to
be staff at the 2017 BSA National Jamboree.  

This is a great opportunity to serve as staff at the 2017 jamboree and
experience the Jamboree at the same time.  Reminder, youth staff 14 - 26
years of age is half price to attend, plus transportation costs. 

My contact information is below and look forward to discussing this with any
scouter interested in staffing the 2017 jamboree.
