Welcome from John Coyle, Scout Executive
Welcome to the Longhorn Council’s brand new website. The majority of the site is functional right now and I think you’ll find what is functional is much more responsive and intuitive than our former site. I also think you will also see that it is easier to find what you are looking for.
What is not functional will be functional in the next few weeks. Please feel free to contact the if there is something you cannot find or if you have questions about how a feature on the site is supposed to work. Look around; I think you’ll like what you see.
What you see is the culmination of nearly a year-and-a-half’s work by a lot of people. During the Fireside Chats held all around the Council by the Key 3, we heard your request to create a more efficient website. Then, in July of 2013, we surveyed our donors and heard the same thing.
I hope you have also enjoyed our other efforts to improve communications to our Scouting family, our bi-weekly e-newsletter, and our presence on six social media platforms (thanks to an intern position created by the Council) that are updated several times a week.
Again, welcome and thank you for all that you do to make our World a better place through your support of the Scouting program. We continue to value your input and act to meet your needs.
