We have been unable to find any direct references that indicate the troop
committee members have to be registered. We have received conflicting
information, through training and experience (must be registered) and our
new council advancement chairman (does not have to be registered) who
attended Philmont this summer.
We have found the references in Advancement procedures and policies, in
addition to the Scoutmasters handbook, that the BOR must be at least three
members of the Troop Committee, and not a unit leader, relative, or
guardian. However, we can find no reference that members of the troop
committee must be registered.
If there is a committee member registration requirement, do they have to be
registered as a MC(committee member)for that Troop or can they be registered
elsewhere as an adult in some other function, MB counselor, Cub Scout
Leader, Explorer Post Advisor, District/council officer, or even another
unit leader from a different troop, etc. ?
We did find information that the Eagle BOR members do not have to be
registered scouters, but nothing on the troop committee BOR's.
In the 1995 printing of the Cub Scout Leader Book (BSA #33220), on page 31:
"Every pack is under the supervision of a pack committee, consisting of a
minimum of three qualified U.S. citizens* of good character, 21 years of age
or older, selected by the chartered organization and registered as adult
leaders of the BSA. One of these is designated as pack committee chairman."
If someone knows of a similar reference or requirement regarding Boy Scout
Troop Committees, please e-mail me directly. I'll post the responses in a
