Pack Governance

Pack 845 is a chartered Cub Scout unit in the Northern Ridge District of the Atlanta Area Council, Boy Scouts of America. Roswell United Methodist Church Roswell, Georgia, is the chartering partner for Pack 845. In return, all members of Pack 845 are expected to act consistently with the wishes of the chartering partner and the Church.

Governance

Pack Policy will follow the guidelines and regulations of the Boy Scouts of America as set forth by the National Council for the Boy Scouts of America and the Northern Ridge District of the Atlanta Area Council.

Specific Pack Policy will be established or changed by majority vote of the Pack Committee. Approved policies will be posted on the Pack website and published in updates of the Pack’s Guide To Scouting

Finance

  1. The Pack Committee will develop a proposed budget for the next year during their Annual Planning Meeting each August.
  2. Camp or activity fees will be set to cover the estimated cost of each event. Surpluses or shortages will be added or subtracted from the Pack account.
  3. The Pack will provide accident insurance through the Atlanta Area Council for all Scouts, registered adult leaders, and registered Committee members.
  4. The Treasurer for Pack funds will maintain checking and savings accounts. It is expected that the Treasurer report on the financial activities of the Pack monthly. The Pack Treasurer and Pack Committee Chair will each be authorized to sign checks on Pack accounts.
  5. The Pack checking account will be managed through ledger accounts.

Should a Scout transfer to another Pack, withdraw or be expelled from Pack 845, the balance in his account will be transferred to a related family member within the Pack. If he has no related family member within the Pack, the remaining balance will be transferred into the Pack’s Saving Account into the Scholarship Fund.
