It is pretty clear to me what active is. Considering active
to mean registration seems absurd; if national means
registration they can say "registration". <<
Yet as an advancement chair who faced this question
head on, let me assure you that that is exactly what
National's position is.
Note that the "rules and regulations" state that there
are two classes of youth members: "active" and "associate".
Each and every time they are asked, National has clearly
stated that "active" in the requirements means "registered
as an active member". If a unit wants to set attendance
policies for their unit, they must enforce this by dropping
boys from the "active" status on their roster.
=46rom National's point of view, you have already told them
that the boy was active, by putting him on your roster.
I plan to write to National about this, asking that they
make their position clear in the re-write of the =
