It probably goes without saying that not wanting to be registered should
raise every red flag there is, but I'm sure you're judgement (and that of the
Unit Committee and the Charter Org.) is adequate.

Since Committee Member is a registered position, I would guess not.
>Can he serve on a Board of Review?
Nope. These have to be Committee Members
>Can he chair a Board of Review?
Nope. See above.
>Can he sign requirements in handbook?
Not sure if we're talking about Cubs or Boy Scouts. Parents can sign for
Cub requirements in the handbook. Other than that, is there even an official
policy on this? Ask your Council/District Advancement Committee. If their is
no standing policy, ask your Unit Advancement Chair.
>Can he counsel a merit badge?
Nope. All MB Counsellor's must be registered as such.
>Can he drive for outdoor activities?
Sure. As long as he is licensed, insured to BSA minimum levels, and
listed on the Tour Permit.
>Can he participate in day outdoor activities?
Sure. Any parent can.
>Can he participate in overnight outdoor activities?
Again, any parent is allowed to do this.
>Can he teach skills in troop meetings?
I don't see why not. I don't know if you were talking about a Pack or a
Troop. In a Pack, I guess so. In a Troop, this is a youth function whenever
Not that I can think of. Anybody else?
