Dear {Contact_First_Name} {Contact_Last_Name},

This past week,  seven CAIs gathered at the Philmont Training Center. They came from the  Northeast, Central and Western Region.   


These Scouters were given the opportunity to develop confidence as a Course Director for the Certified Angling Instructor, (CAI), Train the Trainer Program. 

BSA National Fishing Committee’s most sought after mentors and thought leaders, Ben Jelsema, Fred Hodge, and Michael Brand, shared their passion as part of this outstanding opportunity for personal growth and development. 


Highly interactive classroom and field activities, capitalized on the group’s experiences, expertise and feedback. These sessions included; Promotion, Scheduling, Staffing, Design, Planning, Budgeting, and Administration. 


Join me and congratulate our newest CAI Course Directors.
