District Commissioner Position Cape Border District – Applications now open

Sadly, Lesley has had to step down from the position of DC for our Cape Border District. Happily, she is not lost to our Region and hopes to be able to provide assistance where possible when in a position to do so. We thank Lesley for all her hard work, wish her all the best, and hope to see her again soon on the Scouting trail.  

The Regional Team therefore needs to fill the position of District Commissioner for Cape Border and will need a person who can nurture and grow that District.

IMPORTANT: Electronic applications will close on Tuesday 7 July at 14h00.
