The executive committee in scouts is like a board of governors in a school. They make sure young people get the best possible experience in their scouting group.
The volunteers that make up the committee give their time to ensure that the group continues to meeting its charitable purpose safely and legally. They make sure that there is enough money for the volunteers to delivery the programme and that equipment like tents and activity materials are available and safe to use.
Trustees come from all walks of life. Everyone can contribute something but skills that really help include: teamwork; social skills; decision making; financial knowledge; legal knowledge; problem solving; computer skills.
There are a number of ways to become a trustee. Contact the local chair person for more information.
