Nick Bober, Northeast Region, Area 3 Venturing President.
I am from Seneca Waterways Council. I have been in scouting for the majority of my life. I have been active in my Local Venturing Crew and Boy Scout Troop. I have served on the Area 3 VOA for 3 years (including this year), my previous positions in scouting were VP of Administration and Communication. This coming year (2016-17), I will serve as the President of Area 3. I am currently a Junior at Bloomfield High School. I can not wait to get the entire Area actively involved with Venturing and having fun doing that.

Area 3 Venturing Officers’ Association Goals
Mission Statement:
The mission of the Northeast Region Area 3 Venturing Officers Association is to help put together and organize the Councils of our Area by teaching and applying the Standard Operating Procedures, and create better channels of communication with each council so we can join together and become a stronger Area.

1. Help create Council Venturing Officer Associations within Councils in NER-A3
2. Increase Venturing communication between all our Councils

1. Select and incorporate three Area Vice Presidents into the Area Venturing Team, who are from other councils
2. Help the Council officers create goals that correspond with the Venturing goal: to help youth unite, take leadership roles, make friends, and have fun.
