Chartered Organization Representatives
as voting members ex-officio
The Chartered Organization Representative (“COR”) is the glue between units and the District. The COR votes in District elections. The COR serves on District Committees. The COR reports on the units’ needs to District. The COR reports District’s activities back to the home units. COR’s have not been customarily active in North Star District. We are working to change this pattern to better serve our units and youth. Those with COR Training (Course #D72) and rated as “Trained” are marked with (*). Our goal is 100% trained by the end of 2016.
