Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Curious as to what pack are doing with leader dues to council, do most pack pay these fees for their leaders or do leaders pay their own dues?

Both the Pack and Troop I am apart of pays for leadership dues.

 

They both have that cost considered in their budget.

Scouters in our pack/troop pay their own. Unless the upper echelon get some kind of secret deal and a decoder ring I'm not aware of.

When i was in cubs the pack paid for dues and one uniform.  

In my troop they pay for the dues.

My Pack's policy is that if an adult is willing to take on the considerable time and effort to be a volunteer, the least the Pack can do in return is cover the dues.

As far as I know, my pack covers dues. Given the time and effort leaders put into the process, it seems rather unfair to ask them to pay for that privilege.

Most Packs and or Troops in my district cover that cost as a part of the annual budget.

On the district level, most of us are also affiliated with a unit, so we do not pay anything for the secondary position.  District staff who are not with a unit pay their own registration costs.

Our pack divides the cost of adult leaders out amongst the Cubs. Never an issue until year before last - one family felt it was unfair for everyone to pay for the adults.   They were confused and thought the parent volunteer/DL and their Cub were free. When it’s just the leader. Every kid pays. 

That same family also felt there should be a family discount (we told them they didn’t need to get 2 BL subscriptions) but national & council fees and insurance fees are per person and we didn’t have the funds to offer that much of a discount but had recycled uniforms if that would help at all.  

They didn’t return last year - the new pack they joined called and asked if we gave them a 2 for 1 price since they wanted one there. (Guess they didn’t know it’s a small community of volunteers)

Of the 4 people in my family, my daughter is the only one not paying anything to BSA.  I pay my $36, my wife pays her $36, and my boy pays $115.

When I was in a Pack, the Pack paid the dues of the leaders.  It was only $15 then.  The Troop I am in now, the adults pay their own way.

We ask a lot from our leaders and we don't make them pay for the privilege of spending so much time helping us run the program. We have an effective fundraising team and they find ways to raise more than enough to cover the expense of having such fine, dedicated leaders.  It actually makes it easier for us to recruit leaders.
