> I would very much appreciate if some one could confirm and even
> better, site some official docs, or refs on this issue.
> I have been "taught" and/or trained that the SCOUT MASTER does
> NOT create policy. The BSA, the troop comittee and/or the PLC
> with advice from the SM and comittee create the TROOP policy.
> The SM is NOT a dictator, and should not INVENT or create any
> policy that is not in agreement with BSA national policy and
> supported by the comittee and the chartering organization.
> I have run into a SM who has a "SUPREME AUTHORITY" complex,
> and I would like to be able to point him to a published ref.
> He "claims" to be wood badge trained, but does not wear the
> beads (NO TICKET?).
> As a "trainer" myself, and soon to be wood badge staffer,
> I want to make sure of the correct and proper information.
> Scouter DOn,
> Iz and Eagle, an Eagle Dad, WUZ an Owl, and going to used to be a staffer
