Scout Gift Exchange/PoR Elections

Troop 007:  We completely change out the Troop's boy leadership twice a year.  We will hold our elections for the first half of 2016 on Monday, December 21st on the same evening as our 10 year anniversary and holiday gift exchange party.  For those boys who are First Class or above in rank, you know that taking on a Position of Responsibility (PoR) is required for advancement.  As Boy Scout troops are run by the boys, this leadership is critical to a successful troop.

I've attached a detailed description of all the PoRs available.  They include requirements for participation and expectations.  See your Scout Handbook for listings that help you with advancement.  There are two types of PoRs, some that are elected by the scouts and some that are appointed by the Scoutmaster.  We have many boys that need PoRs for advancement so you may not always get your preferred choice of position.  Elected position candidates will be required to give a short speech (1-2 minutes) about why you are interested and qualified for the position (and why the boys should vote for you).  

I need to know of your interest in a PoR by Monday, December 7th, 2015.

Thanks, Mr. Bishop.
