problem with pow wow rules
- Scouter Chuck wrote about a concern he has when asked to have 2 deep
leadership for a Pow Wow course. Having chaired 2 Pow Wows, and currently
responsible for recruiting staff for our Pow Wow in Jan, I agree with the
person asking for 2 deep leadership.
I have asked everyone to have 2 deep leadership for courses because you
never know what will happen on the day of the Pow Wow. Everyone has every
intention of fulfilling their committment to teach a course but emergencies
happen. Chuck is also teaching a very specialized course, so finding a
substitute instructor at the last minute becomes next to impossible which
results in a poorly taught class or cancellation of a course which
participants want to take.
I never demanded that there were 2 people teaching the class but I did want
someone who could be available with some knowledge of the subject in case of
that unknown emergency.
Chuck even mentions dealing with a health problem, which would make me want
to make sure there is another person who has expertise in the area to be
I've not seen anything requiring 2 deep leadership from National but it
makes sense to me.
