> Parental participation or the lack thereof is a perennial problem in

> leadership & committee is threatened.
> Right now, we seem to be muddling along with the den leaders acting
> committee of sorts. Works pretty OK actually. One of our den leaders (very
> enthused) has expressed frustration at this state of affairs, saying that
> he barely has time enough for planning & running his den, let alone
> to run the pack. He's even considered bailing from the pack to another.
> We plan to bring the issue of parent participation up at our next pack
> meeting. I'm sure EVERYBODY'S met this problem- care to share your
> approaches & successes?
