Executive Board

The Pony Express Council executive board is comprised of community leaders who represent the 18 counties of the council.

The board meets six times annually throughout the calendar year unless otherwise notified.

The role of the executive board is to provide oversight and governance to the council ensuring the best resources are in place to carry out and strengthen the four functions of council operations; membership, finance, program, and unit service to all chartering partners.

The executive board oversees the process of identifying and final selection of the Scout Executive. The Council President Dale Werts, Council Commissioner Kevin Bailey, and Scout Executive Alan Franks; all members of the executive board, make up the key three leadership of the council.
