The Executive Committee plays a very important part in the running of the Scout Group, in fact, the Scout Group could not function without it.
What do we do?
We have several responsibilities on the Exec Committee. These include…
- Providing Equipment for the Scout Group
- Ensuring that the Scout Group is suitably insured
- Raising funds for the Group
- Administrating the Scout Group’s finances
- Assisting in the recruitment of leaders
- Organising social events
- Maintaining our relationship with the Church
Because 4th West Bridgford Scout Group is a charity, all members of the Executive Committee are Trustees of the charity.
Who are we?
Although the ‘Executive’ bit in our title makes us sound very formal and important, it is actually not like that at all! We are just normal parents of children from within the Scout Group.
Some of us are ‘ex-officio’ members and have proper titles. These are the Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary. We also have members who have specific roles for example Youth Reps, Group Scout Leader and Sponsoring Authority Member. Ideally there should be a parent from each section in the Group on the Executive Committee. This means that we have a good spread of opinion and a reasonable base of volunteers who we can call upon from time to time. We very much believe that many hands make light work and that no one person should ever have to do too much!
Where and when do we meet?
We meet about 4 times a year at the Church and our meetings are ususally 7:30pm-9pm. Committee meetings are very informal. We enjoy a chat about all things Scouting.
Can I Help?
Of course you can! The Exec Committee is open to anyone who has an interest in helping the group to function. If you would like to help out but don’t have the time to be a Leader/Helper then the Exec is a great way of helping out the group with minimal time commitment.
If you would like to join us then please contact us – firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the commitment?
We only ask that you attend the quarterly Exec Meetings as often as you are able to. You won’t be signing your life away!
