The Executive Committee (aka the exec) is a small group of volunteers who have overall responsibility for the running of the 167th Scout Group. The Exec are like a driving committee to represent the parents and get the best for their kids within the parameters of scouting. They look after the finances, membership records, policies and charitable activities. They are ultimately responsible for Health and Safety – though the section leaders take responsibility for risk assessing all activities.
The Exec performs a similar function the the Governors of a school or the Trustees of a charity. Setting Vision, Holding Responsibility, Being a Supportive Critical Friend to the leaders who deliver scouting.
Every year we hold an annual general meeting where members of the charity executive committee (our board of trustees), are appointed or elected.
