Letter From the Dean 

“One Goal - Our Dream”

Dear LBPU Attendees,

Welcome to our 28th year. The Lord Baden-Powell University of Scouting Steering Committee is made up of several councils that meet to help offer quality training to all Scouters. The University is going through some great changes. Our Commissioner courses are now in alignment with National courses and with National course numbers to help Commissioners apply for different commissioners training awards.

We have reduced our conference fee to help Scouters better afford our training. The quality and commitment is still the primary objective of Lord Baden-Powell University.

The steering committee has been planning the program and activities for almost a year and hope that you take the time to review the catalog to see the courses they have offered, the fee changes they have made, along with the ease of online registration.

If you are a first-time Scouter to LBPU you will have a huge selection of courses to choose from to help you in your Scouting position. If you are an old friend returning, please take the time to see what changes have been made to the course choices. I think you will be amazed.

On behalf of the Lord Baden-Powell University Steering Committee members and staff I want to thank you for your support and I hope you and a friend will join us for the 28th year of scouting fun, learning, and fellowship. Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.

Jeffrey Moritz
