Long-time Boy Scout Executive Richard L. Fisher has joined the Chickasaw Council of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) as its new chief executive officer in Memphis.
"Our program here in the Mid-South is strong and the commitment from the communities we serve is outstanding," said Fisher. "I'm very excited to be here and for the opportunity to share my heartfelt belief in the life-changing impact of Scouting."
Fisher joined the Memphis-based Chickasaw Council as chief executive officer last month after 24 years of service with Scout councils primarily in the Midwest, and most recently in Detroit. The Chickasaw Council operates on a $3.8 million annual budget and with a staff of 33 who coordinate the activities of nearly 4,000 volunteer Scout leaders across 17 Mid-South counties.
