What is the GEC VOA?

The GEC VOA is a group of elected officers working together to provide support and guidance to sustain and grow the Venturing program in the Golden Empire Council.

The VOA hosts several events per year to bring Venturers together from across the Council in its mission to sustain and grow the Venturing program. It provides numerous growth opportunities for its officers and constituents using the “A-L-P-S” model of adventure, leadership, personal growth, and service.


Join us for a VOA meeting!

The GEC-VOA meets on the last Thursday of each month at 7pm at the Golden Empire Council Office. 

Did you know? - All Crew Presidents are voting members of the VOA! All Crew Presidents or their designee are encouraged to attend monthly VOA meetings and give a crew update, vote, make suggestions, and ask questions!

    Questions? Contact Nate Osborn, GEC VOA President.
