Mohegan Council News

It is with mixed emotions that the Mohegan Council of the Boy Scouts of America announces Jeff Hotchkiss's departure as Scout Executive / CEO, effective September 30, 2018.

Since 2012, Jeff has played a critical role in the development and success of the Council, and while his proactive leadership will be missed, the Council wishes him the best of luck in his next Scouting adventure. Jeff served Scouting in the Worcester area for 6 years and provided dedicated service and saw many significant accomplishments, including:

Decreased annual budget deficits from (-62,312) in 2012 to zero in 2016 and balanced thereafter, by involving volunteers and staff in budget building, increasing revenue, decreasing expenses. Reduced annual membership losses by 97% (-646 to growth in 2016) & increased youth retention to 80%. Increased Cub Day Camp attendance by 39%, Webelos Resident Camp by 20%, Boy Scout Resident Camp by 10% and overall camp income by 10%. Developed first camp strategic plan in more than two decades. Brought six-megawatt solar farm from construction to production and crafted the spending guidelines for this vital income. A second one megawatt solar project was completed in December of 2016. Partnered with local company foundation and university to install solar lighting at all campsites and took our ecology center off the grid.

The Council cannot thank Jeff enough for the dedication, passion, enthusiasm and motivation he has given to local Scouting. He will be greatly missed by the staff, Executive Board, Scouts and Scouters alike. We look forward to following the success of his career and are hopeful and excited for the next chapter of Scouting in Central MA as we begin forming the Heart of New England Council. If you have any questions or concerns during this transition process, please do not hesitate to reach out to Assistant Scout Executive Nick Thornton (*protected email*) or Business Manager Jeff Harris (*protected email*).
