Group Support Committee

Each Scout Group has a ‘Group Support Committee’. This Committee is made up of parents and supporters of the Group. 


All adult family members are automatically part of the Group Support Committee and as such are invited to attend our monthly meetings and Annual General Meeting.  This is a great opportunity to meet our Leaders and have a say about what you would like to see for your child within their Scouting journey.

 

The Group Committee consists of a Chairperson who works closely with the Group Leader to ensure effective management of the whole Group. There is also a Secretary and Treasurer who are responsible for minutes, correspondence and the finances of the Group.

 

There are other ‘supporter’ roles on the Group Support Committee and these may consist of Assistant Group Leader, Group Fundraiser, Social Media etc. 

 

Overall the responsibilities of the Group Support Committee are:

  • Manage the Scout Group

  • Maintain the resources of the Group (human, physical & financial)

  • Raise funds and administer the Group finances

  • Public relations (Group Newsletter, Website, Media, etc)

  • Assist in the recruitment of Leaders and other adult support

The Group Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer all become registered members of Scouts Queensland and will need to have a Working with Children Card (Blue Card) and complete the mandatory training.

 

Any parent or member of the public can become involved with the Group and we welcome anyone who would like to  be involved. 

 

The Gumdale Scout Group Committee generally meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the Month at meet at the Gumdale & District Progress Association Hall, 737 New Cleveland Road Gumdale. For more information on our meetings, email our Group Leader Robert Bate gl@gumdale.scoutsqld.com.au
