That is consistent with GSUSA (at least Pines of Carolina Council) policy.
I just read the latest Pines of Carolina policy statement. All monies, assets,
etc. of their units are
the property of the council, not the sponsering organization. More interesting
is the GSUSA requirement
that a GSUSA professional be a signatory (sp) on all unit and program activity c
hecking and savings
Plus they (Pines of Carolina...I cannot say this is GSUSA policy) require two si
gniture checks and
a to-the-penny annual audit to be submitted to the Service Unit/Council. I hav
e never seen
an equivalent policy in BSA.
