    • There must be more to the story.  Did the CC ask the unit commissioner to run the mtg?  There is no path for a unit commissioner or former COR to take charge without the unit putting them in that position.  
    • Could be that your district has assigned someone due to the above statement.  A unit of 90 Scouts that includes 20 girls is operating outside of the separate units for boys and girls rule.
    • In 2021 I attended NYLT course director's conference in the fal.  It started off completely different than any other of the ones I had been to.  Took just a short time before the questions were asked why it was different.  The staff stated that in 2021 there were 42 complaints filed of youth on youth sexual abuse at NYLT courses.  So that is the number of filed complaints, you know that is only part of the total number.  And this is at the leadership training course where you hope that there is more maturity and composure.  And attendance at NYLT is a fraction of attendance at summer camps.  So, there is the counter to your "nobody got raped".  I decided that I am not willing to participate when the risk of liability is too high.  Personal choice of course.
    • Unit Commissioners are assigned from the district and in theory every unit should have a commissioner. The job involves helping out and being there to offer advice, so yes every unit probably "needs" one.  Now, that role should be advice instead of lead as they are not part of the unit. They shouldn't sit in for the CC. All that said, as I recall your previous comments, you probably need a UC to address some leadership issues, though the UC might not be doing it in the best way.
    • Yep, exactly. Still, it's hard for folks to understand that you want scouts to make bad decision now so that they can be corrected for adulthood. I would be surprised that girls don't make decisions in this area as well. I have witnessed such attitudes on this forum.  Barry
