I have a gripe - don't worry - it does not have anything to do with the list
or any members.
This last weekend I attended my first commissioner's college. I was allowed
to chose two electives to take. One of the two I chose was Youth Protection
training. Now, what gripes me - was that out of the 45+ scout leaders there
for the first time - only 6 or 7 of us chose this class. The rest chose to
learn about uniforms and how to do inspections.
Now, I know there is technically nothing wrong about this. But in my opinion,
I think all leaders should have formal youth protection training - especially
before they learn about how and where to sew patches on a uniform.
Just my thoughts.
