    New SM not new to Scouting

    Congrats on everything. Totally awesome. My two cents. Become a Merit Badge Counselor/Committee Member and help when you can. Also, you could become a Unit Commissioner. Slowly ease your way into Scouting. Being a SM is time consuming and you have a family. That is more important. As to fundraising...Well, that is for the Committee Chair and Committee to figure out. The SM is in charge of the program, not administration.
  2. Scouting in the LDS is all Male. Except for Primary. Moms fill the roles. Outside of that, Moms fill a lot of roles because Dads are busy working or just not there. I do not see it happening. It also would go counter to what the rest of the WOSM is already doing. We need to stop being so isolationalist. Did not work for Japan or China.

    ANNUAL YPT Training

    Western Region has gone to Annual YPT. Because of that Cascade Pacific in Oregon/SW Washington is now Annual YPT. It is coming.

    Helping with the Chartered Org Fundraiser

    Anyone in uniform should not be around/supporting/helping with the alcohol part. I would even say that the parents who drive the kids do not partake as well. However, once the Scout support is done, then change into non-scout clothes and then join in.

    in a new unit can...

    The UC is a friend to a Scout Unit and not registered with them. If your a UC and doing Training, you can be a part of the District Training Team. Great that you can do ASL and provide that service to others. FYI: There is a Wood Badge done in ASL in Utah. There is CC on it too.

    Committe Chair issue

    It is the same within my council. Every change in Adult Positions, a new App is required. Have your husband send an email to the CC & COR stating that he is not the CM, but are Den Leaders. You are not forced to do anything. Time for you both, if possible to go to Roundtable and find the District Commissioner and let them know what is going on. You cannot take over the Pack. There is training within the District for all positions. Go to them and tell the Pack Leaders that you are. The CC & COR are not doing any service to the youth of the Pack. They need to move on. Parents need to step-up and take on positions within the Pack. Hence, my note about finding the District Commissioner. They can get you a Unit Commissioner to help get your pack pointed in the right direction. They also can get the District Training Chair/Team involved and get everyone trained. The District Exec can look over the Charter and see what's going on with that.

    Joint pack campouts

    No problem in combining. If you could help them with their program and help them grow it. great. Don't listen to your Council Professionals. What are they going to do?

  10. As Cubmaster, I started handing out the Arrow of Light Coins. This year, I am going to have them engraved with name, pack and date. The boys get Arrows. Troops provide Books/etc.

    Exec Board cuts summer camp - Camp Black Mt, WA

    National, if I remember correctly, has told all Councils that they need to be finanically stable. So, Councils are making the tough choices.
  13. They are in my Council. Great people. Took a few classes from them at the U of Scouting. Program & Training Conf as we call it here.

    YPT Training Hold-Outs

    I would drop them from the Charter and make them re-do the whole process. It's 30 mins online. So flipping easy.
  15. program.content@scouting.org is the email address. They love hearing concerns. They do respond! I have sent several questions to them.
