Kris Swank's post also brings another point to mind:

It seems as in most cases that Cubmaster's are chosen at the end of the
school year or at the beginning of the school year just before or on
recruiting night. Basic training does a good job of the basics and prepares a
Den Leader to get going. But there appears to be a need for an advanced
in-depth Cub leader training that teaches pack administration, advancement,
program, budget, organization, pack meetings and recruiting. Some of these
items may be taught at Pow Wows, but the Cubmaster may already be sinking or
swimming at this point. The topics may also be covered at RT breakouts, but
it could be a case of too little coming too late.
Do any councils do any Cubmaster or Committee specific training? Is there a
need here for a Cubmaster Orientation Workshop of some kind?
