Pack Leadership Job Descriptions

The local council helps the chartered organization understand the program, however it is the chartered organization's program and is part of the chartered organizations youth work. These groups, which have goals compatible with those of the Boy Scouts of America, include religious, educational, community groups, fraternal, business, labor, and professional associations.

qualified U.S. citizens of good character, 21 years of age or older, who are selected by the chartered
organization and registered as adult leaders of the BSA. One of these is designated as pack committee chair.
Obviously, with a committee of three, members must assume responsibility for more areas of service than
with a committee of seven or more, where the responsibilities can be spread around. Although packs can and
do operate with a minimum of three committee members, experience has shown that a larger committee
generally ensures a stronger, more stable pack. A larger committee is better able to perform all the required

to the pack.
