IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON DUES!

Posted on Aug 24 2014 - 10:24pm

PLEASE READ IN ITS ENTIRETY

In the last committee meeting, a new dues policy was approved.  Unfortunately, dues will need to be raised this year, largely due to increased registration/recharter fees beyond our control.  We are using this opportunity to restructure how we charge dues in an attempt to also address another problem: the need for more adult volunteers.

The new dues policy is as follows:

  • The new base amount is $100 per scout due by December 31st.   
  • Eagle Scout dues remain at $50.
  • Adult dues remain at $5.

There is no longer a “multi-scout” family discount.  Instead, discounts are provided for each scout with at least one parent active in troop leadership.  Discounts are provided based on the prior year, so active leaders in 2014 get a discount for dues the end of this year. 

The discounts are:

Active Merit Badge Counselor: for three or more badges: $10 discount for all scouts ($90 per scout).

  • Active means signed up and available for scouts to work on merit badges
  • Mr. Woodman will be conducting an information/training session in September.  Every adult  who signs up at that meeting will be eligible for this year’s discount.

 Active Scoutmaster/Assistant Scout Master$20 discount ($80 per scout)

  • Active means all training (online, indoor, outdoor) and ~30% participation in meetings/outings
  • Any adult who registers in early September and completes the required training by the end of the year will receive this year’s discount.

 Active Committee Member$20 discount ($80 per scout)

  • Active means Youth Protection and committee challenge complete and active leader role such as Popcorn Kernel, Secretary, etc., or sits on 3 or more Board of Reviews. 
  • Participation in at least 2 committee meetings.

Next year’s discount will be determined by the Committee based on Adults on the recharter list. This means you must fill out an adult application!  There are a lot of ways to be involved in the troop, and we need your support to stay active and help the boys learn and advance.  A dues discount our way of saying thank you to those who donate their time.

Questions about the new policy can be directed to our treasurer at MeghanStarr@bellsouth.net.

Communication

Posted on Jun 20 2014 - 10:03pm

To encourage the development of good communication skills, Troop 422 requests that scouts persue answers themselves by calling or meeting in person. This means that parents are asked not to call, email or text, and scouts are asked not to email or text, to initiate contact.
