Troop Committee Organization and Responsibilities

The troop committee is the troop's board of directors and supports the troop program. But you ask, "What does the troop committee do?" The troop committee does the following:

  • Ensures that quality adult leadership is recruited and trained. In case the Scoutmaster is absent, a qualified assistant Scoutmaster is assigned. If the Scoutmaster is unable to serve, a replacement is recruited.
  • Provides adequate meeting facilities.
  • Advises the Scoutmaster on policies relating to Boy Scouting and the chartered organization.
  • Supports leaders in carrying out the program.
  • Is responsible for finances, adequate funds, and disbursements in line with the approved budget plan.
  • Obtains, maintains, and properly cares for troop property.
  • Ensures the troop has an outdoor program (minimum 10 days and nights per year).
  • Serves on boards of review and courts of honor.
  • Supports the Scoutmaster in working with individual boys and problems that may affect the overall troop program.
  • Provides for the special needs and assistance some boys may require.
  • Assists the Scoutmaster with handling boy behavioral problems.
