This blog stems from how a unit, in my case a Pack, communicates to parents and Scout Parents outside of Den & Pack meetings.
In our pack, there is a lot of email between Den Leaders, Committee Members, myself and parents. I have created newsletters from time to time to keep everyone in the loop. There is also a pack website and calendar which is in need of serious work. So, the communication in my eyes has been spotty and sporatic.
Because of this, I have started to re-work the Parent’s Guide that is about 5-6 years out of date. So out of date our Chartering Org and meeting place is not who it is and where it is today! This is a work in progress. So, this will change. My hope is to keep it to 12 pages or less. This booklet also contains my goal for next year. I think that every Pack should have a goal.
This is a guide, it is not a list of by-laws and Pack specific rules that is 45 pages long. In my research, readings and listening to Scouting podcasts from PTCMedia, what I am creating is a supplement of who is in the pack committee and our goals for the year.
The laws and rules set forth by Boy Scouts of America, is what we go by. All the books published by the BSA is all that is needed for the Adult Scouters to help the Scouts have as much fun as possible.
