I will tell you what ours does and what every troop that has any kind of
reasonable size. THE BOYS DECIDE WHO FILLS LEADERSHIP POSITIONS AND I
OBJECT TO YOUR ASKING THE QUESTION. It is your job as an adult leader of
the troop to carefully explain the jobs to your SPL during his training
after you have carefully explained his job to the troop and what you expect
of him and then they have elected him. The SPL, after hearing what the jobs
are, and after being told he will have to do whatever jobs are not done because
of bad appointments, usually picks the right guy. Since we started doing it
this way, we have good SPL's and the SPL has replaced two failures in positions
in the last three years. The Boy run troop works if you give it a chance.
Your job is safety and leadership TRAINING, not leadership.
