Wear non-uniform clothing or BSA uniform?

What a COR might wear:

  • Business clothing (business casual to semi-formal as appropriate) - COR guidebook (2015), p. 2, maybe showing a COR in business suit with necktie.
  • Non-BSA organization clothing (except military)
  • One of the above with BSA neckerchief and slide at a Scouting activity - Guide to Awards and Insignia, 2018 printing, section 1, Special Regulations, page 13 (upper right) - MAYBE - Other country Scouters do it…BSA appears to be restricting wearing a neckerchief with non-BSA-uniform clothing to Scouts.
  • A BSA field uniform with silver shoulder loops and chartered organization representative position emblem badge
  • Scouter Dress Uniform

COR with a unit position (multiple registered) field uniform

That brings us back to does the chartered organization representative who is also multiple registered as a Troop Committee member wear as a field uniform?
a. COR non-unit uniform with silver shoulder tabs?
b. Troop Committee uniform with unit numbers and silver shoulder tabs?
c. Troop Committee uniform with unit numbers and red should tabs?

I believe the answer is “a.”.
