Crew Committee Positions of Responsibility

For a Crew committee and its sponsoring organization to fulfill the “Purpose of the Boy Scouts of America” to the youth in the crew, many people must be involved. Successful crews have active committees, which involve as many parents and other adults as possible. This also divides the whole job, making each person’s job easier.

Care must be used to assure that the committee does not encroach on the rightful responsibilities of the Advisor or other troop leaders. Likewise, those leaders must not assume the functions of the committee. Each is important and must be carried out concurrently.
Each re-registering unit must contain the following positions: chartered organization representative, committee chair, two (2) members of the committee – not including the committee chair, and the Advisor. For two-deep leadership, one or more Assocate Advisors are needed.
Here are the Crew 84 Committee's Mision, Vision, and Values statements:

Mission: To use the Aims and Methods of Boy Scouting in a safe environment to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Vision: To prepare and steward each member in our crew to become a responsible, participating member of the crew, citizen, and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.

Values: The Scout Law; A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent. The 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.
