In addition, the National Commissioner puts out a Newsletter that has
proved extremely valuable to our council commissioners, and an issue this
past summer listed the statement on adult leadership required very clearly.
If you wish, I will see if I can still locate a copy of that actual
statement and send you the info.
Please keep in mind that this policy of 2 adults is so new that most of
your literature was printed PRIOR to the actual policy. That is exactly
why I recommend all leaders in our movement read the first to articles in
the Scouting magazine very closely. Many times the "new" policies and/or
positions, or program requirements are found there even before the
professionals received the info.
