For the Troop Committee position descriptions, I recommend obtaining a
copy of the "TROOP COMMITTEE GUIDEBOOK" #34505B $4.70. It lists all of
the standard Troop Committee position descriptions. [Note: some Troops
have bylaws that modify some of these slightly and add some others.]
For the Troop Leader position descriptions, I recommend obtaining a
copy of the "SENIOR PATROL LEADER HANDBOOK" #32501 $7.95 and the
"PATROL LEADER HANDBOOK" #32502 $7.95.
As for elections not being at a Troop Committee Meeting, when else
would the Committee elect its officers. The comment about "want me to
hold the elections as an open forum instead of a committee meeting."
confuses me. All parents should always be encouraged to attend
Committee meetings. These are normally on a standard date during the
month and announced on the Troop's calendar well in advance. Our Troop
normally holds its June Committee Meeting at the Annual Troop Picnic
and hold a Troop Committee meeting at that time including elections.
Troop Leadership elections should be held at a normal Troop function.
Our Troop holds its Troop Leadership elections either at Troop Meetings
or the Annual Picnic. We elect SPL & ASPL in December and June, and
other Troop Leadership positions in March & September, to take effect
the first of the following month.
I hope these references are helpful. Feel free to contact me if you
have any more questions.
Yours in Scouting,
Ken Todd, Troop Committee Member
