Mike - What is your reference for the registration requirements and
examples you gave? They seem to be way different than the ones I have
been trained on and have used for the past twenty years.
I.E., COR cannot be the unit leader or assistant according to BSA
Rules/Regs, Article VI, Section3, clause 7. Why? As COR he/she is NOT a
member of the unit, rather is a Council/District member. See the BSA
Rules/Regs, Article VIII Section 1 Clause 2. This leaves the committee
and den leading positions open to the COR.
Also, isn't three the absolute minimum number of adults for any Troop,
Team or Post, and four for Packs(without regard for gender or two-deep
leadership requirements)? I mean, if we want to get into each "IF" for
unit leader registration, you would need 11 adults to run a Pack with
three dens. Why? 2 each den (6); CM and CA (8); three committee (11).
It is my understanding that adults cannot serve in two positions
simultaneously within the same unit. See the first paragraph of the
Guide to Safe Scouting and the Rules/Regs of the BSA, Article VI,
Section 3, clauses 7 through 9.
The question was to the official requirements of BSA. We need to
provide the official minimum answer, as well as our best opinion on the
"good" way to handle the requirement. Your explanation certainly gave
the logical way to cover gender and two-deep requirements, it just did
not cover the "minimum" and "official" requirements, which I think is
what Utah asked for.
I understand your response was tilted toward a good way to do it, but
your response could lead many to believe that that is the OFFICIAL
policy of the BSA. Gotta be careful! ;-)
