Fred Rogers found the correct answer to Stans original question. Now I
would like to ask another question concerning the answer. Here is the
snippet that I am referring to:

Who is the troop committee? More simply, do they need to be officially
registered as MC on the unit roster?
I have seen units that say that all parents are considered committee
members, although they only register the least number possible to save
money. I have also seen units require every family to register one adult
for this reason. Then the non-registered family member is drafted to sit
on the board of review. So what is the difference between the two?
IMHO, the lower ranks it does not matter. What about the higher ranks?
Does it matter.
Just curious. Do you only draft registered members of the committee? This
would restrict advancements with some units. Or is this Scoutings way to
get more money from the adults?
