One person as IH and COR

I’ve searched online but cannot find the answer. I know that the COR can be a CC or MC at the same time. But can the IH of the CO be the COR, too? Thanks in advance.

I think so. The institutional head is not a registered position.

From July 2019 version of REGISTRATION GUIDEBOOK OF THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA page 14 section No-Fee-Required Registrations “Executive officer and Lion and Tiger adult partner positions do not require a registration fee because they are not registered adult leader positions. These positions also do not require a completed BSA adult application and are not submitted for a criminal background check. While Youth Protection training is not required for adults holding these positions, it is recommended for all participating adults.”
I have been designated Institutional Head for Scouting by my CO & I am also the COR so on the MYST membership rosters for all 3 units I show up as IH & COR, so I would say yes to the question.


Thank you so much. Your reference is very helpful.
