Chartered Organization

The Chartered Organization and the Pack

The relationship between the unit and the charter organization is a two way street. They do something for you, but you need to do for them, too. One great way to improve or restart any relationship is to bring good will to the table.

Ask the pastor (priest? ???) or whoever is in charge for a meeting. Let Your boys benefit because they learn about helping others, and they earn service hours towards recognition and advancement. The church benefits because they get something done. The pack benefits because they’ve gained greater visibility from the church.

There’s a BSA publication called “Role of the Charter Organization Representative” or something like that. Get a copy for your COR. Ask them to come to your committee and pack meetings. Include them in some ceremonies if they’re willing. All along, you nurture that relationship!
