The Committee

Every pack is under the supervision of a pack committee, which consists of the parents and guardians of the Cub Scouts and leaders of the pack with at least three specific positions: committee chair, secretary, and treasurer. By handling administrative and support tasks, the pack committee allows the Cubmaster, den leaders, and their assistants to focus on working directly with the Cub Scouts.

Experience has shown that more parents participating in monthly committee meetings, or “pack family meetings,” leads to a stronger, more stable pack that is better able to perform all the required functions to ensure a successful pack program. The pack committee meeting is also a way of involving all pack families in meaningful service to the pack.
