    • The Chartered Organization is the authority over anything else at the unit level. As it relates to who can be a member of the pack and who can't, the CO outranks the CM and committee. 
    • Where are there mixed troops now? So we should call our CSE a liar because at the local unit level some people are going against the design of the program as it pertains to gender?  In my pack the CM actually comes in fairly low in terms of authority on policy and procedure. The committee has, on occasion, voted to override a CM decision. Not sure if that is standard BSA procedure or not, though. 
    • That is an excellent question. I think you are asking if the Chartered Organization can over-rule the unit leaders. Yes, it can.
    • We have mixed dens now,   we have mixed troops now.  not some where in the future, not in a few years,  now.   Only a few but no one doubts that there  are going to be more and more of them until they are the norm. If you really think that our CEO will be surprised by this,  I have a bridge to sell you.  No checks please, cash and in small bills     
    • Can the CM do whatever he or she wants t? It’s a chartered organization. She doesn’t own it. There is a committee. And a company that sponsors the Pack. With that being said, in any instance of any ingrievance anyone has, does she truly have the authority to make decisions that affect the Pack on her own without committee approval?
