I have been named the Cubmaster for my son’s pack, after another parent moved on to the local area council. After taking the proper training courses, I realized I am not only the Cubmaster, but playing the role of den leader, pack leader, treasurer, along with other duties for Tigers, Wolves,Bears, and Webelos. I have been given little to no help or advice, and it has become frustrating.
Scout Book will not give me access to any scouts, my parents do not use the platform anyway. I suggested an alternate app for communication, but my predecessor shot me down, insisting we only use Scout Book, so at the moment, I cannot post on the event calendar, add achievements for scouts, or advancement, (not even for my own son). Many parents have become impatient with the failures of the program, and I don’t want to chase them away from Scouts. Also, there are about nine scouts that have never attended a meeting on my roster, and i have no contact information for them.
I have been paying for all materials and supplies with my own money, and do not have a way for parents to pay dues, because there is no bank account. If there is any advice to give, I will gladly take it. Sorry for the scattered mess of a topic, but I desperately need help.
