Scouts-L Mail Archive for February of 1999: Training for New Troop Committee Members
Training for New Troop Committee Members
Wed, 3 Feb 1999 22:58:21 EST
I'm seeking the experience of the list in providing an introduction to
Scouting principles, troop organization and operations, committee functions,
etc., for new parents and committee members. What have you found useful
(vital) to cover in (say) one evening of 3-4 hours? Is there a good
alternative to showing the Fast Start, "Barbeque" and Health and Safety
videos? Does it make sense to include breakouts (30 mins, perhaps) for
specific committee functions (advancement, treasurer, chartered organization
rep, etc.)? If you can provide an outline or syllabus by private email, so
much the better. TIA.
