One of the unique attributes of the Venturing program is the relationship between Venturers and the crew Advisor. The ability to work effectively with your adults as they themselves plan and run the program is a true test of leadership skills.
With the new Venturing program introduction on August 1, 1998, inclusion of the Venturing Advisor Award of Merit was a key program enhancement to recognize crew Advisors for tenure, training, and quality crew program.
The crew president in conjunction with the crew officers nominates the Advisor. The nomination is approved by the crew committee chairman.
The nomination is then certified by the unit commissioner and submitted to the council service center.
The nomination is then approved by the Scout executive and council commissioner, who should then forward it to the Venturing Division.
