(Taken from the BP&P SECTION 4000 – APPOINTMENTS/POSITIONS, 4007 – GROUP COMMITTEE)
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 Quartermaster to look after the purchasing, storage, maintenance and insurance of equipment.
