Members of the Asia-Pacific Regional Scout Committee and Sub-Committees had their induction, orientation and meeting on 18-24 May 2022 at the BP International Training Center in Mount Makiling Forest Reserve, Laguna, Philippines. This is the Region’s first hybrid  gathering since the Regional Scout Conference in February 2022, combining almost 50% in-person participation and 50% online attendance.

Dale B. Corvera, as Chairman of the APR Scout Committee and National President of Boy Scouts of the Philippines, welcomed the participants. 

“We hope to establish a working relationship among all of us over the next several days, including the Asia-Pacific Support Centre's skilled pool of professionals. The bar will be raised. In the following three years, we shall agree on how to carry out our work. We shall work together as a team and support one another”, Corvera said.

Regional leaders shared insights on volunteer leadership and management to help them steer the Region towards achieving its goals for the next triennium. Tackled in the orientation was the new triennial plan of the Asia-Pacific Region for 2022-2025, crafted in the light of WOSM Triennial for 2021-2024. The six strategic priorities and corresponding objectives and KPIs were discussed –how to achieve them and the working methods to be used. Other components of the orientation are the regional structures, WOSM Services and Safe from Harm.

The Induction, Orientation and Meeting is a necessary event for the leaders to familiarize themselves with how they will work with other members of the Committee or their Sub-Committees, and plan the implementation of their objectives in six priorities: Youth Engagement, Educational Methods, Diversity and Inclusion, Social Impact, Communications and External Relations, and Governance.

Experts in Scouting led the training, namely former World Scout Committee member and WOSM Consultant Peter Blatch, World Scout Bureau Chief Operating Officer David Berg, Global Director of Organisational Development Karin Nolke, Director of Membership Services Ruth Potts, and executives from the Asia-Pacific Support Centre led by Regional Director J Rizal C Pangilinan, Directors S Prassanna, Luz Taray and Syd Castillo.
