shedfield scout group executive committee
Every Scout Group has an Executive Committee. Like a board of governors in a school; it essentially makes sure that the best quality Scouting is delivered to young people in the group. The volunteers that make up the Committee give their time to ensure that Scouting continues to meet its charitable purpose: safely and legally.
We are currently looking for
Scout Groups need a ‘civilian’ Chairperson to work with the committee and leaders, so if you feel that this is a role for you, please call me on 01489 899099 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an impartial chat. Previous Scouting experience is not a requirement!
Who can be a member of the executive committee?
Currently we are made up of Leaders and Parents, but anyone with an interest in Scouting can volunteer subject to a few checks and regulations.
How can I get involved?
Ideally all Sections (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) should have one or two Parent Representatives to ensure their Section has a say in decisions that may affect them. This is a great way to find out more about what the committee does.
How much time will it take?
We meet one evening each half term. As a Parent Rep you will need to attend most of these meetings (although nobody can be there every time!). Meetings usually last no more than 2 hours and are informal, usually involving tea, coffee and biscuits!
What skills or experience do I need?
All Executive Committee members have different skills to offer, come from different backgrounds and have varying experiences. This helps to ensure a variety of perspectives and a more rounded and effective Executive Committee.
