To Paul Whitfield
Early today Paul Whitfield asked what a BSA Troop is required to do in order
to qualify for Quality Unit Award.
Not all that much, as a matter of fact I believe that being a Quality Award
unit, only brings a unit up to the minimum requirements for being a standard
unit, a good unit will likely do much more.
I don't have my list with me right at the moment, so I am going by memory
and some times that isn't too good.
But as best I recall, earning the Quality Unit Awards is some of the
(a) Have a trained leader, (b) Have a Friends of Scouting presentation, (c)
Have at least 50 percent of the boys attend Summer Camp, (d) Have at least
four Troop committee meeting during the year, (e) Show some membership
growth, (f) Hold a certain number of outdoor activities.
There may be a couple of other things that I have forgotten, but none of it
all that hard for an active Troop to accomplish.
