Tenure may only be used for one award at a time. The level of the award makes
no difference. No two Scouters (Cub, BS or Whatever) Awards may be earned
concurrently. This was changed effective Feb 96, I Think.
The Cub Scouter Award may be earned by any registered Cub Scout Leader. Many
times a leader may have been a Den Leader for a year and a Committee Member
for a year, as long as the requirements are met. The Cub Scouter Award is a
kind-of catch-all for those individuals who provide leadership to the Cub
Scouting program. It could conceivably be earned by a district, or council
level leader as well. Even the COR could earn the award, even though they may
not be on the Committee (they would be considered to hold a District or
Council Cub Scouting Position).
The COR can also earn the "District Committee Key". He is indeed a voting
member of the District Committee as well as the Council.
As it stands right now the Tiger Cub Group Coach Award is still valid.
However, I expect that changes are in sight. A Tiger Cub Group Coach could
also earn the Cub Scouter Award.
The TigerCub Group Coach is no longer a member of the Pack Committee. They
hold a position all to them self.
The Tenure for all Cub Scouting Awards is now 2 years with various
restrictions as to Assistants Positions. A Person Who has been an Assistant
Den Leader or Assistant Cubmaster may earn the Cub Scouter Award. The new
scorecards indicate the change in tenure.
