Gina make some good points, and one being that ONLY CS WB is for
good reasons, by invitation ONLY, and clarified WHO should attend
an why. Makes some sense ?
However, the Scouting WB programs nation wide do not always seem to
be OPEN or announced to everyone that otherwise may be "qualified"
to attend. It would appear that anyone that has attended the Scout
Leader Training, and has appropriate tenior could be considered for
attendance. However, it appears that there are some other SUBJECTIVE
considerations of WHO should attend? I would assume there is some
suggested BSA published list of POSITIONS that could/should attend?
If there any positions that would not benefit from the program? I
know of a case of a troop committee member that attended, and got
so involved that he would up as district chairman for a few years,
and after a merger, is now serving as Unit commissioner.
So, take my own example, Eagle Scout, OA Vigil member, former Cub Master,
Web leader, and Pack Chairman (all trained), former Explorer Post advisor,
former Assistant Scout master, former OA Advisor, current position NONE!
(not really true, I do serve on District Advancement and help with the
Eagle BOR, presentations and etc, also still registered as troop committee,
and MB conselor, and work as OA assistant advisor for elections and CAMP promo
However, I and not in charge of anything, nor have a specific position patch
to wear. We are waiting for our un-official NONE patches to show up, but
maybe HELPER of even general nusience would be a better title. SO, here
it be. . . Should I attend a WB course or NOT ? any WB? I completed all
the Cub and Scout leader training, and earned the former CUB and SCOUTERs
KEY's and Training awards (not the current variety). But I seem to hold
no current official position that would "entitle" me to attend a WB course?
