Getting involved in Scouting as a member of our Group Executive Committee.
Our Scout Group relies on the support and help of volunteer to enable it to thrive! Ask a young person why they stay in Scouting, and they will probably say because its fun! This is true for our adults too!
If you would like to help out but don't have the time to be a Leader or Helper then our Group Executive committee is a great way of helping the Group with minimal time commitment.
Our Group Executive Committee plays a very important part in the running of our Scout Group, in fact, the Scout Group could not function properly without it.
What is a Group Executive Committee?
The Group Executive Committee is responsible for the management of our Scout Group. It is accountable to the Group Scout Council, which is made-up of all the people involved in Scouting in our Group: leaders,
helpers, parents, administrators, Patrol Leaders, and a few others.
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! Our Committee is made up of normal parents of children from within the Scout Group.
Can I help?
Of course you can! The Executive Committee is open to anyone who has an interest in helping our Group to function.
What is the commitment?
There is no fixed time commitment - the time required to fulfill the role varies. It is probable that you will have between three to six 2 hour Executive meetings during the year. In addition you may choose to support fundraising and other Group events.
Before you decide
We really hope that you can help us support Scouting in our Group and we will be delighted if you say “yes”. We only ask that you attend the Executive meetings as often as you are able to. You won't be signing your life away! Roles can be flexible too.
