Welcome to our new Unit Serving Associate for North Cascades District

The Mount Baker Council is proud to announce that Heather Lindsey will be joining the Council staff to serve as a Unit Serving Associate, effective April 16th. Her first day will be April 18th

The Unit Serving Associate is a full-time, non-exempt staff member. Heather will be responsible for the execution of a comprehensive unit service plan of the Charter Organizations and their Scouting units for the North Cascades District including working in partnership with the volunteers serving with the North Cascades District and the Mount Baker Council. Heather will be focused on membership growth, manpower recruitment, fundraising campaigns, and helping guide and provide support of the district and council volunteers. Heather will also work closely with the commissioner staff in providing quality unit service to the charter partners.

Heather comes from a Scouting family. Her father and mother volunteered throughout her childhood. Her brothers are Eagle Scouts, and her father is a Silver Beaver recipient. Heather spent many years volunteering as den leader for the Grand Teton Council in Idaho. She and her family moved to Blaine, Washington, where she served as a committee member and then Cubmaster for the local packs. She was also a Program and a Camp Director for Cub Scout Day Camps in Whatcom County. She enjoyed being Popcorn Kernel and Program Chair for Whatcom District. Heather believes that a strong, quality program can only exist with engaged, trained leaders. For that reason, she was President of the University of Scouting and staffed Woodbadge and NYLT. She has also served in youth programs for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Heather is excited for this new role and the opportunity to continue working with Scouting in the Mount Baker Council.

Please join with all of us as we welcome Heather to our staff. We look forward to Heather’s positive successes within the Council team for the North Cascades District.
