I wanted to find out what other scouting units practice with regard
to handling the troop (pack, post)checking account. Our current
practice is that two signatures are required and the SM, CC,
Treasurer, and two or three other active adults are authorized to be
signatories. The selection of the others is primarily availability to
sign checks, so we select those people who are always there (you know
the type, the ones who really make things happen!).
The issue has arisen that the COR has demanded he be
added to the list. I don't know his motivation, and I doubt it is
sinister. His comment was that he (the organization) owns us and he
should be on the list.
I don't want to debate who owns who, I just want to survey the
practices of other units.
(1) What do you do and why?
(2) Are there any BSA requirements in this matter?
