An Update on Annual Vanguard Memberships

by | Feb 2, 2021

A Word from The Commissioner

A week or so ago, we made a decision to eliminate the Annual Membership for a couple of reasons which, at this point, are not particularly important, but which were significant to us at the time.  Immediately we heard from a number of you speaking of the value of the Annual Vanguard Membership and requesting that it be retained.

First, thanks for your devoted support of Vanguard and all each of you does to strengthen Scouting among Latter-day Saints across the world.  Secondly, thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.  And, finally, after careful consideration of those comments, we have determined to retain the Annual Membership in Vanguard International Scouting Association.  Annual Membership will still cost $25 per year and will be for a period of 12 months from the time you renew your membership.  At any time, a Vanguard member can apply past annual membership payments towards lifetime membership ($250) or charter membership ($500).  Thank you for your support of Vanguard International Scouting Association.

For those who cared enough to share their thoughts, I am sending a little token of my appreciation, and encourage more of you to share with us your thoughts about how Vanguard can more effectively support and strengthen Scouting among Latter-day Saints worldwide.  You can address your comments to  Thanks for all you do — and Good Scouting!

Charles W. Dahlquist, II
Vanguard International Commissioner
