Jim, & others
We recently reviewed our combined proposals for troop "by laws"
and/or standards as part of our IN HOUSE Junior Leadership
program run over Easter Break. It was a joint effort by the
SM + ASM + current SPL, ASPL & Scribe. We strive to have
a BOY run troop, with guidance only as necessary from adults.
They reviewed the various documents that have circulated on
Scouts-l, and will soon present their OWN version to the
committee. IF is completed in the near future, I will have
a copy available to those that request a copy.
We do not always get scouts to volunteer to RUN for all the
positions, so the SPL ofter has to BEG his buddies to help.
SPL and PL's seem to be the only jobs that scouts WANT.
So we may have a standard ONLY to run for SPL & PL. The rest
may only be a standard for statisfactory service once they
accept any other leadership positition to help the general
benefit of the unit.
Do other troops find that scouts want to be Scribe or Quartermaster?
