Further, he indicated that some of the immediate tasks of the new executive are to review the State of the Movement in Dominica, conduct a census of its members and plan a way forward, in collaboration with the membership, as well as to review and update the existing Constitution.
He said that it is imperative that Scouting moves forward through the National Association with everyone’s assistance, including the past President and Executive, working together with the incoming President and Executive and the Commissioners and general membership of the Scout Association of Dominica.
The main function of the Executive Committee in collaboration with the Council is to manage the affairs of the National Scout Association and promote the growth and welfare of the Scout Movement in Dominica.

One major upcoming activity for the Association is the 2017 Caribbean Jamboree, which Dominica has accepted to host.
Planning for this event must begin in earnest, he noted.
