I was approached by the Boy Scout Roundtable Commissioner and was told that I
could not be Cub Scout RT. Commissioner since I was the Cubmaster for my pack.
As long as I do a multiple position and fill out the correct form(s), is this
a true statement. I can not find this is any of my documentation, and when I
asked my DE, he laughed and said it was not true.

If Scouters couldn't hold more than one position, we would all be in maj
trouble. How could Roundtable Staff pass on the experience they have
accumulated to newer leaders if they weren't also leaders too? Yes, Cubmaster
and Roundtable Commish are both big jobs. But they aren't mutually exclusive.
Do be careful of the burn out factor. I'm a bit over loaded at the moment
and know what that feels like. (Ken conned me into Com. Chair for the new
Troop he was tapped to form. I've said temporarily only. By Feb. you have
You can do both jobs. But if/when you begin to feel that burnout coming
sit back, reaccess which jobs you LIKE doing, and which are more duty than
joy. Then be firm about the pack or district helping find you a replacement.
If you aren't, you'll do the job forever. I "retired" as Den Leader Coach
over a year ago, so that I could go back to Tiger Cub Coach for a change of
pace. Since they still haven't found some one to replace me, I'm still doing
that job too! On top of Roundtable Commish, this is a heavy load. I have a
plan in place to take some of the load off. You will need one too.
P.S. I have a snail package almost ready to go to you. I'll try to get
finished next week. Above all make sure you're having fun.
