A group of us Commissioners were discussion a problem that was reported
to one of us. After we discussed the problem, we still did not know
what the real answer was. So, with the help from the group, I am hoping
that I can bring back an answer.
Here is the problem.
A COR for one of our Troops told the Committee Chair that the Troop
could no longer hold anymore Board of Reviews unless he is a member of
the Board of Review.
There is a little history of friction between the CC and COR. The
reason the CC does not want the COR on the BoR is that the COR is rough
with the Boys. What rough is we are unclear? It sounds like he might
be doing some re-testing.
Here is what our brain storming came up with.
- The COR is not automatically a member of committee. Only committee
members make up the BoR. This is black and white.
- If the COR was multiply registered as a Committee Member, no committee
member can demand to sit on a BoR. Or can they?
- Although the COR must approve the adult leadership, this does not give
him permission to run the troop his way. Or does it?
Once we have an answer to this, that we can back up in a piece of scout
literature, the commissioner staff will go into action and clear this
matter up. Hopefully we will need to go to the COR and tell him to back
Inputs are welcome. Knowing what piece of literature has the answer
would even be better.
