Assistant Scoutmaster Meeting

  • 9 present
  • Chad discussed roles and responsibilities that he would like to have set between the ASM team and the SM. Main goal is to have a team approach and keep communication open at all times. He would like to see the ASM more involved with rank advancement, SMC, scoutmaster minutes etc.. He is looking for current Subject Matter Experts in Map/Compass, First Aid, Plant/Animal, Knots, and Civic/Governmental Line of Duty as well as a Creative Director who will take on on big production a year. We all need to be team players for Chad so that he will have a smooth transition as SM for T693.
