As I recall from the original post, the question concerned
being a "unit leader" in two similar units ("Can someone be
a leader of 2 troops at the same time?"). Again we are
faced with a terminology problem. Kathie answered the question
based on the way BSA uses the term "unit leader."
In BSA the term unit leader is reserved for the one adult
nominally in charge of the program at that level. For Cubs
it is the Cubmaster. For Boy Scouts, it is the Scoutmaster.
For Exploring, it is the Post Advisor. All other adult leaders
aer refered to as, oddly enough, adult leaders. In fact the
unit leaders are also adult leaders (all unit leaders are adult
leaders but not all adult leaders are unit leaders).
Kathie's answer is still correct. Adults may be multiply enrolled
in different units or levels, but the practice, while sometimes
neccisary, is generally discouraged.
I might recommend a little booklet to help with the terminology thing.
It is called (from memory) "The Language of Scouting." It is a
glossary of usage available fron your local council shop, etc.
