Scouts-L Mail Archive for October of 1998: Troop Committee Training (was Trained Emblem)
Troop Committee Training (was Trained Emblem)
Fri, 23 Oct 1998 08:40:48 -0600
I've seen several posts referring to/asking about troop
committee training. At this point I do not know of any BSA
training specific for troop committee. In order to earn the
Trained Emblem troop committee chairmen and members MUST
complete Scoutmastership Fundamentals.
But the problem is that there is very little on the troop
committee in SMF. I know, I will be teaching that very session
tomorrow in our district's SMF. There is a real need for better
training for committee people, and many units, districts, etc.
have tried to fill that need by developing supplemental
training. I did this myself when I was a Troop Committee Chair,
and I have a training outline that I have used many times to
help committees understand how they should be functioning. Much
of what I use came from the prior version of the Troop Committee
Guidebook and from a BSA Unit of Training from about 15 years
ago for Troop Committee. I have shared this outline before and
I would be glad to send it to anyone who would request it.
