Transportation

The logistics of getting scouts and equipment to and from troop activities can be a daunting task. All troop parents are expected to occasionally assist with transportation. Generally, the leaders and parents who are participating in the activity can handle this, but there will be occasions where help will be needed.

BSA regulations require that any driver transporting scouts must have minimum insurance coverage and one seat belt for each scout being transported, plus the driver. BSA does not, under and circumstances, permit scouts to be transported in the bed of a truck.

Vehicle and insurance registration forms are available through the Troop Committee treasurer.

Troop Committee

The Troop Committee is an integral part of the troop organization. The Troop Committee is comprised of the parents of troop members and advisors appointed by the charter partner. It is the role of the Troop Committee to support troop activities and the leadership of the troop, to establish policies for troop operation, to review proposed troop activities, and to identify and enroll new leadership as required.

The BSA requires that a Troop Committee consist of a chairman, treasurer, secretary, and advancement chairman; but there are many other positions that can be filled. Parental participation makes the troop function better. Decisions of the committee are based on a simple majority of the members in attendance.
