Group Committee

From Scouts Canada Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Group Committees are formed to assist Group Commissioners in servicing and supporting Groups. Group Commissioners need not do everything themselves. Part of their responsibility includes assessing the needs of the Group, determining the amount of work to be done and, if necessary, building a team to ensure that all tasks/responsibilities are achieved.

Depending upon the size of the Group, positions may be merged or other positions added as required, i.e., large Groups may find it helpful to add a Group Fundraiser, or Group Quartermaster to look after the purchasing, storage, maintenance and insurance of equipment. Examples of positions that Group Committees may choose to fill may include, but are not limited, those listed below.

Screening and Training

As with all Scouter/volunteer positions, members of Group Committee must go through the Screening process. This includes completing the full Wood Badge Part I training, including the Group Committee specific modules.
