I’m a fairly new SM (13-months). Pre-COVID, the Troop has always had the Committee meeting following PLC. The Committee Chair has the SPL report to the Committee on what was planned at PLC. We’re now on different days, but the SPL attends the first part of the Committee meeting.
My quick google search pulls up some pros and cons on each side of the issues. When I went looking into BSA training material for the Committee, I found no mention of having the SPL present. As far as reports on Troop activities, according to the training, this falls on the Scoutmaster.
What are the forum’s thoughts on the matter?
The issue I have is my committee starts micromanaging what was planned. “who’s doing this?” “Have you thought of that?” “What are you doing for summer camp?” They honestly can spend 30-minutes of the meeting with the SPL. I’d argue that if I’ve done my job correctly as Scoutmaster during PLC, I’ve nudged the Scouts to address all the concerns one might have.
