(or What have I got myself into?)
I am a soon-to-be promoted Cubmaster in a pack with a two person
committee. One of the committe people is my Committe Chairperson and
guess who the other de-facto committe person is? Yes, I know that I am
trying to do too much. I've approached this past year as a learning
opportunity. And the lesson I have learned is not to try to run a pack
this way. <grin>
Soooo, I'm working on my recruiting skills and spreading the
responsibility around. My question is, for those of you who have been
in this situation or helped increase parental involvement is:
1. How does the committe work? Who gets a vote?
2. Does a written set of bylaws help? and who writes them
and/or changes them?
3. How to best help new committee members fulfill responsibilities.
I know it's a pretty tall order. What I am afraid of is not having been
in a pack with a functioning committee, how do I jump start one without
stepping on peoples toes, avoid looking like Alexander "I'm in control"
Haig, and get this committe airborne?
I just wanna have fun and campout with the boys.
