PLC Meeting Notes

Boy Scouts is “Boy-Led.” The Patrol Leaders’ Council (PLC), not the adult leaders, is responsible for planning and conducting the troop’s activities. The PLC meets on the last Monday of every month to develop plans for upcoming meetings and activities. The Scoutmaster (and Assistant Scoutmasters) provide direction, coaching, and training that empowers the scouts with the skills they will need to lead the troop. The Troop Committee provides resources to help the PLC. The Patrol Leaders’ Council is made up of the Senior Patrol Leader, who presides over the meetings; the Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, all Patrol Leaders, Troop Guides, and anyone else holding a troop position. The PLC plans the yearly troop program at the annual troop program planning campout.
