Training Syllabus Error?
There is no official policy making all adult leaders members of the pack committee that I know of. It looks like whoever wrote page 109 in the new syllabus, Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training, 515-215, ©2019 Boy Scouts of America, 2019 Printing, misread the Cub Scout Leader Book, "Leader and Family Roles and Responsibilities chapter, pp. 49ff. That is easy to do because positions and their responsibilities are run together and not clearly separated.
In the old syllabus, Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training, 34875, ©2001 Boy Scouts of America 2010 printing SKU 34875, “Pack Committee Training”, p. 97, Slide 168, “Pack Leaders” lists the following as NOT being members of the pack committee.
- Chartered organization representative (Note 1)
- Pack Trainer (Note 2)
- Cubmaster and assistant
- Den leaders and assistants
- Den chiefs
Chartered Organization Representative (COR)
Note 1: The COR may or may not be part of a unit committee. For more see the Chartered Organization Representative discussion topic.
Note 2: In 2019 the Pack Trainer (Mentor) is a member of the pack committee. Per the Guide to Leader Training, 721-920, 2018 Printing p. 52 the pack trainer:
Under the direction of the pack committee chair, helps leaders and parents understand purposes, policies, and procedures of the Cub Scouting program.
