Sorry, but ALL committee members must be registered, they have no
choice. No unit may function without the minimum of:
1 - Chartered org. rep.
1 - unit committee chairman
(the above can be the SAME person, but I do NOT recommend it)
2 - additional REGISTERED adults (0ver 21yrs old) as members of
1 - top unit leader (cubmaster, exp. advisor, scoutmaster, team coach)
In a PACK - you MUST have:
1 - den leader (recommended asst too) in order to register ANY (even
1) Wolf or Bear level scout (and YES that happens far too often).
2 - webelos den leader (recommended asst too) in order to register ANY
(even 1) Webelos scout, either first or second year Webelos.
1 - asst unit leadr (asst. cubmaster, asst. advisor, asst,
scoutmanster, asst. coach) to FULFILL 2 deep leadership requirement
(all of them must be basic trained in the program for which they are
registered, CS basic training does NOT qualify a person to be basic
trained in BS- although my home council (NORTHWEST SUBURBAN COUNCIL,
IL.) does not seem capable of following that rule. Our registrar just
has not figured out the 2 key stroke required NOT to transfer training
data as complete into other program areas.
Think about it --- why would we set a unit up to fail? --- by
requiring registration, we inspire committment, many, many units and
council also require completion of basic training --- why not?
If you really want to set up (purposely) the environment for a ONE
MAN/WOMAN SHOW, and then, for that show to FAIL when the one man/woman
burns out or gets tired! Don't follow our common sense regulations.
However --- I have to ask --- is $7.00 a year REALLY too much to
expect a parent to pay for the opportunity to spend some time with
