The troop is boy-led and the Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters provide a tremendous amount of guidance using the Methods of Scouting.
The Scoutmasters oversee the daily/weekly activities of the troop, and ensure the Patrol Leader Council is providing an appropriate program for the troop.
The Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters are NOT formal members of the committee. The Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters are advisers to the committee. They may attend committee meetings to communicate scout plans and to coordinate the needs of the Scouts. This factor is important to remember during Boards of Review because the Boards of Review also serve as quality checks of the Scouting program as delivered by the Scoutmaster and the Assistant Scoutmasters.
