In my troop, the boys can serve as PL as many times as they are
elected. If they aren't PL, but need or want another job, we can get them one.
On the night of elections, we pass out a survey to everythat lists all the
troop jobs. The boys mark the three jobs they want. later on, the new SPL,
and the SM sit down and make the appointments. The SPL appoints, and the SM
advises. Since we have a very large troop, we sometimes have two QMs and
multiple troop guides, and instructors. Almost anyone in the troop can be an
instructor, but the SPL needs to make sure that the patrols presenting the
skills at the meetings know they can use this person as a resource. I hope
