Lackawanna Membership Committee Mission:
The Membership Committee’s mission is to bring the Scouting Program into every neighborhood
and every home in the Lackawanna District. We accomplish this by assisting each of the 60 Unit
Membership Chairs to help grow and continue to bring a quality program to all of the Scouts.
