Conquistador Council is a local council chartered by the Boy Scouts of America in southeastern New Mexico to administer Scouting programs that build character, train our young people in the responsibilities of participatory citizenship, as well as develop personal fitness.
From its headquarters in Roswell, the Conquistador Council is divided into five geographical districts: Chisum Trail (Eddy County), El Llano Grande (Curry, Roosevelt and DeBaca counties), Oil Patch (Lea County), Rio Hondo (Chaves County) and Sierra Blanca (Lincoln County). All of these districts are dedicated to the advancement of Scouting in their local communities.
The Conquistador Council is led by volunteers, with administrative duties performed by a staff of professional scouters. The Council President is the top volunteer; the Scout Executive is the top professional and the Council Commissioner coaches, consults and helps maintain the standards of the Boy Scouts of America.
