Leadership in multiple packs

Is there any guidance if parents can be in leadership in two different packs?

people can register in as many units as they want. Not sure I understand the question

I mean can you be a den leader in Pack 45 and then also be a registered leader in Pack 24.

sure - from a national stand point there is no issue with that

The only issue is being multiply registered in the same unit. That is only permitted for the Chartered Org Rep, and even for them only for certain concurrent positions.

When adults are registered in multiple units, a completed application for each position must be obtained unless the units are chartered by the same organization. Where the units are chartered by the same organization, a photocopy of the application may be used in each unit file, so long as each photocopy is individually signed and reflects the specific unit position that the adult leader is registered to hold in each unit.

Multiple Registrations

Individuals who are registered with the BSA may multiple register in another BSA unit or non-unit position by completing a new BSA youth or adult application.

If a Scouter serves in more than one capacity or a youth participates in more than one unit, only one registration fee is required. Youth and adults should pay a fee in only one position per year in traditional programs and be considered multiple in any other position in which they serve.

Youth and adults can multiple across councils.

A multiple registration is not counted in membership totals. Only the registration where the fee is paid is counted in membership totals.

An adult under the age of 21 that is participating in a youth program (Venturing or Sea Scouting) can multiple register as an adult in a troop as an assistant Scoutmaster.

There are no restrictions on the number of positions one person may hold as long as the individual serves in only one position per unit with the exception of the chartered organization representative (CR), who is the only individual that can be registered in more than one position within the same unit. The CR may also serve in a multiple capacity as the committee chair (CC) or as a member of the committee (MC, NM, or PT) within that unit.
