National has developed a training program for Troop Committee members.
The program/course was presented this past summer at Philmont. As
participants in Boy Scout Leader Training, we were given the course.
It was only about three hours long and used some teaching techniques
not usually associated with the way we train, but it was interesting.
The course was based on the new Troop Committee Guidebook which is out
now. It's going through "beta testing" before final release to
everyone. My only negative comment is that the new course may not be
seen as thorough enough (only three hours???).
