Help build Auburn's newest troop!

A call for Troop Committee Members

With Troop 50 in its infancy, it is a great time to get involved and be a part of something special. I am looking to fill some troop committee positions so that as a group we can determine the direction and policies for Auburn's newest Boy Scout troop. Have your opinion heard and become one of the founding leaders of Troop 50.

Concerned about the commitment?  Here are some facts that may alleviate some of your concerns:
  • You can work in an area that you are comfortable with.
  • Our troop is a small and agile, so clerical tasks are not too overwhelming.
  • Policies have not been set and software has not been purchased. Instead of being stuck with someone else's decisions or software, you can be a part of the decision making.
  • It's not a lifetime commitment and I understand that circumstances change that will prevent you from continuing. Help as long as you can.
There are several specific positions I'm looking to fill such as Advancement Chair, Outings Chair, Equipment Coordinator, and Treasurer. However, you are welcome to participate as a committee member and help where you can. I would like to schedule a troop committee meeting before the end of the year, so let me know if you are interested in helping out.  You can contact me at troopcommittee@boyscout50.org.

Thanks for the opportunity to serve the troop.  I hope you'll join me.

Your Troop Committee Chairman,
Rob Stanford
