The PLC is the “Patrol Leaders Council” and it is the group of scouts who lead the Troop and the individual patrols. They are elected by the Troop every 6 months, and serve from February through July, or August through January. These guys make the real decisions about troop activities, and are responsible for ensuring that each of your scouts has the opportunity to learn and grow.
I will take this opportunity to congratulate the newly elected Troop 104 PLC on their election to leadership positions for the next 6 month period. Congrats to:
PLC “Green Bars”, called this because of the bars on their shoulder patches):
Michael Gentile - Senior patrol Leader (SPL)
Jamey Kaiser - Asst. Senior Patrol Leader (ASPL)
Antonio Spadaro - Asst. Senior Patrol Leader (ASPL)
Grant Brown - Troop Guide
Sam Venick - Patrol Leader for Phoenix patrol
Dan Farrell - Assistant Patrol Leader for Phoenix patrol
Evan Johns - Patrol Leader for Wolf patrol
Doug McIntyre - Assistant Patrol Leader for Wolf patrol
Ryan Poladian - Patrol Leader for Owl patrol
Steven Ho - Assistant Patrol Leader for Owl patrol
Ryan Lesiak - Patrol Leader for Wolverine patrol
Andrew Wilson - Assistant Patrol Leader for Wolverine patrol
Other elected Positions of Responsibility (“POR”s) – we include these as extended PLC:
Steven Ho - Scribe
Quartermaster - Evan Johns
Chaplain’s Aide - Colin Okell
Webmaster - Adam Bransky
PLC members (both Green Bars and the other POR’s) should come to each PLC meeting, (it has been our convention to include all POR’s since they need to be *active* to include their position for leadership credit). This election is the first time that we have staffed the positions of Chaplain’s Aide and Webmaster, and that is a reflection of our needs as a growing Troop.
When elected to the PLC, the SPL, ASPL’s, and Guides do not remain fully active in their patrols – they are working at a Troop level (although they retain Patrol membership). After their term, they return to active patrol participation. The non-greenbar POR leaders remain active in their patrols, and may also hold a patrol leadership position if they desire.
It might sound complicated to you if you’re new to Boy Scouting – but it’s not really. This is all part of how your scouts learn leadership skills.
Scoutmaster, Troop 104
