SPL is NOT a member of the committee and has no vote there. BTW, neither
does the Scoutmaster! Our troop committee meetings are open to anyone
wishing to attend but we do not encourage youth members of the troop to
attend. Committee meetings often are long and boring and most Scouts
who have come end up frustrated. The best thing I have seen is for the
SM, SPL and Committee Chair to meet prior to the troop committee meeting
and discuss things that they think should be on the agenda. The SM brings
the issues from scouts to the troop committee but since the SM is often
overloaded, the extra meeting helped make sure that all issues important
to the youth got addressed.
