<< The bottom line appears to be that the assistant Scoutmaster wants minimal
out-of-pocket expense in his volunteer duties. And he expects to have his
expenses covered either by reimbursment from the troop or adult fund raising
I have had to deal with this before.
Ask the person in question if he wants to be assistant Scoutmaster.
If he does, why?
So he can get a free ride or to promote the aims and methods of Scouting?
He/she needs to comprehend the aims and methods of BSA.
Its quite obvious where the focus of this person is.
Compare to other things this person could possibly be doing:
Any competitive sports, eg. bowling, darts, softball, etc.
I have never seen anyone supporting these activities with fundraising.
And besides, Scouts don't do 'fundraising', we do "money-earning" and that's
what this person should be help teaching.
There is no question or doubt where this person should be.
What happened to the second part of the Scout Oath?
"To help other people at all times...."
Not "To help myself at all times......"
