Check your training award requirements for ALL Scout adult positions. They
all require some dedication and committment in tenure.
I actually have seen 100s of Tiger Cub Organizers (now called Group Coach)
stay on as their boy passed into the pack to help facilitate the incoming
parents. I can give you a list of units in three councils I know who
believe in the "two deep leadership" plan of BSA which in the case of
Tigers means a leader stays two years, and has someone backing them up so
that when he/she moves out of the position, there is always someone to take
It actually has been working a long time, quite well.
