How to start a new BSA unit (draft—please comment!) in Open Discussion - Program Posted October 15, 2019 1 minute ago, Calion said: a linked troop, but the chartered organization insisted that the girl troop have its own committee. We, and the troop we were linking with, assumed that the boys troop and the girls troop would have the same committee. When it came time to turn in the paperwork we learned from the council that the committee members of the boys troop would only be committee members of the girls troop if they turned in an additional paper form. The COR, CC, and a few boys troop committee members did so. So now we have some people on both committees, some offficially only on the boys committee, and some officially only on the girls committee. (It is a bit of a mess.) The whole committtee meets all together. I suppose if there were ever a contentious vote, it would matter who was registered on which committee. As it is, some people are more focussed on the boys, some more on the girls, and some foccussed on both.
