Welcome to the Hawkeye Area Council’s NEW Website!
The first step you will want to take is to create a MyCouncil account; just click “Join” in the upper right hand corner of any page you happen to be on. Most importantly, this will allow you to register for activities, camps, trainings, campsites, and other events online. It will also allow you to do a number of other things including but not limited to:
Join and view unit home pages with unit calendar, news and headlines, group email tool, a place to store files and share with unit members, security features, and editable home page content.
The ability of manage activities/events/trainings from the website (generate lists of attendees and their specific event information all accessible from the comfort of your own home).
Receive the council’s e-newsletter (Make sure you click the box when creating your MyCouncil account!)
A couple of helpful hints that we’ve found along the way:
If you want very basic information about your district (i.e. leadership and Roundtable information), click on “Districts” on the left hand side of the home page.
If you want the above information PLUS District News, Events and Activities, District Calendar, etc. make sure you click your District’s name on the right hand side of the page.
News and Events - This website is a bit different in that it basically operates as a blog. On the home page you will see news stories (things that would usually be put on our Council Blog). These stories WILL NOT include event information. In order to find upcoming events, there are a few different ways to go about it:
On the right hand side of the page you are able to see what the Council Calendar looks like for the next 7 days.
You can also go directly to the Council Calendar to view month by month.
You can click “Events & Activities” on the left hand side of the home page to view short articles about events with the option to view extra details.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your District Director/District Executive or the Hawkeye Area Council via the “Contact Us” link on the top of the Council’s website.
