Looking for committee resources
Tue, 8 Jun 1999 23:02:35 -0700
Is there a definitive source on how a troop committee is supposed to
function? I picked up a copy of the new Troop Committee Guidebook (made
for 3-ring binder) but found it only marginally helpful. It does list
the job descriptions (which seem to have changed somewhat from older
versions of the Guidebook) but doesn't really explain how the various
positions coordinate with each other or with the troop. How, for
example, is a Troop Treasurer supposed to work with the Troop Scribe?
Is the Treasurer expected to attend troop meetings, arrange special
training sessions, or what? Also, how involved is the Committee Chair
expected to be in responsibilities nominally assigned to the other
Is there some sort of procedures manual that more fully explains HOW
each job is supposed to be done?
