minimum required for training
- I agree with the rest, on not canceling training. Here in Great
Smoky Mountain Council, we strongly discourage districts from
cancelling any training. As was stated by several others, if you get
the reputation of canceling, people won't sign up. As for outdoor
training, we do that council wide, instead of by district. Each
district has attendence goals, which does help in our getting a
decent turn out. Personally, if only one person shows up, it's worth
my time to give them the training. That's just one more person who's

- I have watched this thread with interest, waiting for someone to bring
up what is probably the driving force in our area - finances. As
District Training Chair, I am under pressure to never go over budget, so
we have to set minimums for a break even point. Within the past year,
our Council will not approve a budget unless it shows a 7% allowance for
insurance, a 10% allowance for contingency PLUS it has to show a bottom
line profit. So, while my precourse budget always follows these
guidelines, my final financial report will always include the 7%
insurance assessment, but will not allow a 10% + overage.
I agree that it would be worth my TIME to train one person, it would not
be financially feasible.

Here in Blue Water we charge $5- for CSLBT if we are serving a lunch, other
wise it is free. The council pays for printing the handouts, supplies the
trained patch and the training card. We charge $15- for OWL and $25- for
SMF, which just has to cover food. We get free use of the buildings and
campsites at our Council camp, which is centrally located within the council
boundries. I guess I've got it good.

- At Greater St. Louis Area Council, the participants are charged
$12 for Cub Scout Basic Leader Training, in which they receive
a Participant's Notebook, and the Leader's Handbook. If they
already have their Leader's Handbook, then the charge is $7,
I think (not sure about that price, I"ll check it out later).
We hold training as long as one person has signed up in
the Herrin Service Center ahead of time. We will NOT hold
training if no one has signed up, even though some leaders
say "we have XX leaders coming to your training day" ....
because more often than not, if they don't have time to
call and sign up -- they're not going to come to training.
