Leadership Positions and definitions of responsibilities:
The Pack Committee
Every pack is under the supervision of a pack committee. This committee consists of a minimum of three qualified U.S.citizens of good character, 21 years of age or older, who are selected by the chartered organization and registered as adult leaders of the BSA. One of these is designated as pack committee chair. Obviously, with a committee of three,members must assume responsibility for more areas of service than with a committee of seven or more, where the responsibilities can be spread around.Although packs can and do operate with a minimum of three committee members,experience has shown that a larger committee generally ensures a stronger, more stable pack. A larger committee is better able to perform all the required functions of a successful pack program. It is also a way of involving more pack families in meaningful service to the pack.
