Many Groups across Wrexham District don’t have functioning Executive Committees made up from parents, carers and members of the local community – rather than Leaders wearing yet another hat. It’s our aim in 2021 to improve this situation with each Group having an Exec with at least three non-Leader members.
Support for roles
While it’s important to have a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer, if you don’t have people in these roles, it’s perhaps best to start with people as Group Executive Committee Members to start off with until they find their feet
Young people on Execs
Every Executive Committee must include at least two young people (aged 18-25) as members
Regulatory Reporting Requirements
Executive Committee members are charity trustees and therefore must comply with statutory accounting and reporting requirements. This applies even if your Scout Unit isn’t registered with the relevant charity regulator.
Executive Committee recruitment
There is resource to promote Executive Committee roles to potential volunteers. It gives basic information about what it means to be a charity trustee and reasons why it is a great volunteer role to take on. It is available to download or to order from Scout Shops free of charge.
