Hi Paul!....well, here we go again....But I gotta tell you that national
DOES INDEED define what "active means". It's in the BSA Rules and
Regulations, Article VII, Youth Members and it says that an "active" member:
a. Attends meetings regularly.
b. Participates in an age appropriate program.
c. Subscribes to the Scout Oath...
d. Fulfills a members obligations...
When the scout is doing all of these things, he is an active member. When
he doesn't, he's not. The R & Rs go on to say that if, in the judgment of
the unit leader and the unit committee, a scout is unable to meet the
requirements of active membership he may be carried as an "associate"
