If you run your committee meetings according to the Troop Committee
Guide and the Scoutmaster Handbook, only committee members have a
vote. Technically Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters are not
part of the committee, so they don't have a vote. Obviously youth
leaders would not have a vote either under this scenario. That being
said, many troops I know do permit their SM and ASMs to vote. I don't
know of any troops that allow the SPL to vote.
Our committee meetings are open to anyone who cares to attend. We do
let our SM and ASMs vote. Our youth leaders don't regularly attend
committee meetings, but I don't have any objection to them attending.
In our troop the SM is the liaison between the committee and the PLC.
