Local Scouter Serving At Regional Level

Many adult volunteers from the Greater St. Louis Area Council serve the Boy Scouts of America at the regional and national levels.


Bingham, Barry.JPGBarry Bingham, a veteran leader from our council, was named the Central Region Program Impact chairman in September. He will be responsible for adult and youth leadership training, advancement, recognition, Venturing and program development. He also will oversee delivery for the Central Region, which covers 13 states and 72 councils including the Greater St. Louis Area Council. The councils serve more than 530,000 youth and 220,000 adults. He will become a member of the Central Region Executive Board.

Mr. Bingham served Scouting in our council for more than 20 years as Scoutmaster, Wood Badge course director and National Youth Leadership Training course Scoutmaster. He served as the contingent leader for five troops at the national jamboree and was a jamboree Scoutmaster. He also was a world jamboree Scoutmaster.

He served in several other district and council training assignments, including the last strategic plan. He was on the faculty at the Philmont Training Center and Sea Base seven times. He served most recently as the Area 3 Program Impact chair for 11 councils, including the Greater St. Louis Area Council.
