Hi Angel Bev or Bev,
One other change you as Committee Chairman can make is to =
restructure your Committee Meeting. The Troop Committee
Guidebook offers a reasonable agenda which includes
input from the ScoutMaster Core on Boy concerns and
Scout Program concerns. Take a look at Chapter 8.
Some really good troops add to their troop committee =
agenda by having the SPL or the ASPL as "THEE" leaders
of the PLC attend the committee meeting and give the =
PLC and SPL report just prior to the SM or SM-Core =
report. Ideally (and by the Book) the SPL as PLC leader
should ask the Committee for Agreement, Advice, and of
course mutual Altruism. (Hee Hee 3 A's
In terms of BOY growth this is a GREAT idea you might
want to consider integrating into your Troop's total
It MIGHT BE tough to initially SELL this idea to your =
co-adult leaders yet give it a chance using the =
following kind of a Sell-Line.
"It is their Troop and future and we are supposed to =
be mentoring them on their leadership skills up to the
highest of levels which includes the Committee."
If you do convince others to accept this idea please
come back to Scouts-L and find out how to address =
some of the sticky points that others have solved.
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
