Here's a question of BSA policy that I would really appreciate a definitive
and explicitly documented (in a current BSA publication) answer for:
What is tenure (in a scouting context)?
Two possible answers are:
1. An amount of time served in scouting.
2. An amount of time served in a particular position in scouting.
To illustrate, consider the policy (I think it's from Training Guidelines)
which says (roughly) that "tenure earned cannot be used to fullfill the
requirements of more than one award."
If you use definition number one, this would mean that if a person were
a Cubmaster and a Commissioner at the same time, the scouter could only
work on a tenured award for only one of the positions during a particular
period of time.
If you use definition number two, it would mean that the tenure earned as
a Cubmaster could be used for a Cubmaster award, and tenure earned as a
Commissioner could be used for a Commissioner award.
If you need a more precise definition of this problem, let me know.
