The VOA (Venturing Officer's Association) was created in 2007 and is a meeting of all the Venturing Crews in the council. Anybody from any Venturing Crew can attend and contribute ideas on how to improve the Venturing program in the MDSC council. The VOA's purpose is to help crews run a successful Venturing program. The Venturing Officers Association holds elections for the Council Venturing Officers annually. VOA officers are responsible for the Venturing program at the Council level. The MDSC VOA puts on two annual events: The Open House (to help recruit Venturers) and the Fiesta (so Venturers can have fun while camping).
