I ran a very successful pack for five years with the
- Cub scout leader Guide has all the policies you need.
- Monthly cub roundtables for updated information
- Staging Pack and Den ceremonies to maintain my credibility.
- Committee votes and discussions on some policy matters.
I don't think you need a written policy to run a pack. It's all
there, and you don't have to worry about not running a quality program.
The scouts have recognition for having your people do it right (National
Quality Pack award, knots., etc) which will give them the incentive to do
it as recommended, and committee votes will give you flexibility.
Getting as many leaders and committee members trained with Fast
Start and Basic Training, and then referring the the Leader Guide will
probably solve the urge to re-invent the wheel with a set of pack rules
and "fix" something that's not broken.
Write personally if you have questions.
