Speaker: Bob J
Bob reminded us of our responsibilities to the Troop that we sponsor and hold a charter to.
As the representative of this club to Troop 17, he has been trained by the Boy Scout s on his responsibilities to assure our Scouts have a place to meet, their leaders are trained and that the members of the Troop uphold The Boy Scout values.
This may clarify some of our club responsibilities:
  • Chartered organizations must use the Scouting program to accomplish their objectives in a manner consistent with the Bylaws, Rules and Regulations, guidelines, policies, and other publications available on the BSA national website located at www.scouting.org/about/membership-standards/. • The Charter and Bylaws of the Boy Scouts of America
  • • The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America • The Rules and Regulations of the Boy Scouts of America • The Scout Oath and the Scout Law, including Duty to God • BSA youth protection policies and guidelines, including mandatory reporting • The Guide to Safe Scouting • The Sweet Sixteen of BSA Safety
  • • Scouter Code of Conduct • Incident Reporting https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/incident-report/
  • 2. Chartered organizations must not use their charter organization affiliation or the Scouting brand as a means to imply Scouting’s endorsement of the objectives of their organization except with respect to youth development consistent with the goals and objectives of the Scouting program. Scouting units should utilize the BSA Brand Center for all branding guidelines, images, and logos. The BSA Brand Center can be located at www.scoutingwire.org
  • 3. Charter organizations must not use the Scouting program to obtain financial support or assistance except as authorized for the chartered unit. Scout Mission: The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Scout Oath: On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight. Scout Law: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
As the representative from this club Bob may have to mediate when there are differences. As a lifelong Scout, Bob has had many training courses given by the Boy Scouts and knows the organization well.
