As a district associate, Jessica works a scheduled number of hours, so response rates may be longer than previously experienced with district executives who were essentially "always on call." As always, the Scout Service Center at 218-729-5811 serves as a primary point of contact. Emergency calls are about to be routed after-hours to an on-call executive via 218-729-5811.
