Greetings from North America to all WOSM Scouts and Leaders from around the globe!
As the three co-chairs for the 24th World Scout Jamboree, we are excited that each day brings us closer to what we feel will be the best Jamboree ever! We are thrilled to have the three National Scout Organizations from North America united as a team to deliver the Jamboree to you and your Scouts.
We want to thank all the attendees at our first Head of Contingent meeting held just this past April at the Summit Bechtel Reserve. We are pleased that we had over 180 participants from more than 50 National Scout Organizations in attendance. Between the sessions, the tour of the Summit Bechtel Reserve and our meals, we are confident that the meeting was a great success. A reminder that if you would like to review the material distributed at the meeting, please go to: http://www.2019wsj.org/hoc 
Allow us to share with you some items that will be helpful in preparing your contingent:
- Keep looking for emails that feature our latest blogs. They will be sent monthly to International Commissioners listed in the WOSM directory, and to registered Heads of Contingents. Please share with your contingent members as needed. You can find all the New World News blog articles at https://www.2019wsj.org/the-event/new-world-news-blog 
- Contingent materials can be found here: http://www.2019wsj.org/hoc 
- Make sure you are aware of the Allocation and Payment schedule and policy. You and your team can access that document at: https://www.2019wsj.org/allocation-fee-and-refund-terms-and-conditions/ 
- Please share the news with your leaders, Scouts and families about our new on-line retail site. Invite them to purchase branded 24th World Scout Jamboree items. The site address is: https://2019-world-jamboree.myshopify.com/ 
- As we get closer to the 24th World Scout Jamboree, we know you will have questions that need to be addressed. Please coordinate your questions through your Head of Contingent, who can then email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org 
On behalf our Planning Team, thank you for all you are doing to prepare Scouts for the 24th World Scout Jamboree. See you at the Summit Bechtel Reserve!
Yours in Scouting
