Every Scout Group, District and County has an Executive Committee.
It is essential for the success of Scouting in that area. A strong and effective Executive Committee goes a long way towards building a strong and effective Group, District or County.
The role of the Executive is to support the Group Scout Leader in meeting the responsibilities of their appointment, and is responsible for:
• the maintenance of the Group’s property and equipment
• the raising of funds and the administration of the Group’s finance
• the insurance of persons, property and equipment
• Group public occasions
• assisting with the recruitment of Leaders and other adult support.
The Executive Committee is made up of a number of members. These are members nominated by the Group Scout Leader, members co-opted onto the Committee and members elected by the Council.
The Group Council consists of all adults involved in the Group, including parents of the young people.
