Council Membership Committee

The Council committee is a planning and supervising body whose job is to see that every eligible young person of Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, or Venturing age within the council territory has an opportunity to become a member. The council-level committee performs the following tasks:

  • Make periodic contact with major chartered organizations.
  • Conduct a community organization survey. The committee should have a list of all the community organizations within the boundaries of the council and should survey their needs and their desires regarding young people and their ability to organize one or more units.
  • Develop cooperative relationships with groups and organizations serving special youth populations.
  • Provide recognition for chartered organizations and those who organize new units.
  • Participate in the development of the council's long-range plan and the forthcoming year's goal and objectives planning.
  • Provide support for districts to succeed in their unit and membership objectives.
  • Work cooperatively with the commissioner staff to reregister units and lengthen their tenure.
