Japan takes its turn for the Committee NSO Visit
The regional team in charge of the Committee NSO Visit (CNV) had a highly productive meeting with the key leaders of the Scout Association of Japan (SAJ) from 1st to 3rd June 2009.
Using the eight-key performance indicators, the regional team, comprised of Regional Scout Committee (RSC) members Dr Yung Chaur-Shin, Fazlur Rahman, Prakorb Mukura and Kirsty Brown, as RSC consultant, looked into the areas of constitution, mission and vision, management, youth program, adult resources, relationships and communications, resources development and research development, and carefully assessed how SAJ performed in these areas in delivering Scouting to young people. At the end of the meeting, they reached a mutual agreement to look into areas that need expansion or strengthening. Overall, the CNV commended SAJ for being a highly cohesive organization with international relations.
The CNV team appreciated the participation of Rover members for their impressive presentations on various exchange projects with different countries, and commended their initiative to plan and implement the projects.
Joining the regional team were Regional Director Abdullah Rasheed and Director for Communications Ms Luz Taray.
Since the first CNV visit in Indonesia on March 2008, it has become fully operational with the participation of all Regional Scout Committee members and Chairmen of the Sub-Committees who are working as small teams that assist national Scout organizations in delivering and continually improving the quality of Scouting.
