Statement of Problem

Many men, leaders in their communities, have been asked to serve as members of a local council executive board or to be registered as a council member. Because of their reputations in their respective communities, it is felt that they would be of great value to the Scouting Movement. Prior to their acceptance of this assignment, they have discussed the responsibilities involved. Their knowledge of Scouting and the terminology of the Scouting Movement may be limited to the information gained when first approached or to that which they have read in their local newspapers.


It is the purpose of this paper to bring together the most important information so that in a few minutes time, a person new to scouting, can acquire at least a speaking acquaintance with the organization of the Scouting Movement.

Many words could be written of the far-flung influence of this Movement. It is unfortunate that this influence cannot be measured. However, it is reasonable to assume that our country is a better place in which to live because literally millions of men and boys have been exposed to the ideals as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law. As a result of this association, it is certain that they are men of character and participating citizens.


There is a lack of knowledge of scouting and because of this we have too few volunteers in the community to serve as adult leaders to provide for and carry out the Scouting program.
