Appointments Advisory Committee

Posted on

We would like to recruit some additional adult volunteers who would be willing to participate as Appointment Advisory Committee (AAC) members and we are also looking for somebody to take on the role of Appointments Secretary.

There is no requirement for previous or current Scouting experience and it is a non-uniformed role.

The training requirements for the roles can be viewed here;

The committee is a requirement for each District and primarily exists to assist with the process of appointing adults in Scouting by making new members feel welcome and ensuring that they are aware and accept the values, policies and promise of the Scouts and they understand the requirements of their role. The time commitment is as much or as little as the committee member wants it to be. We usually meet once per month and rota the meetings among the committee.

Could I ask that you share this with your teams and groups. If you know of anyone is interested please ask them to get in touch with myself at appoinmentschair@wiltshirenorthscouts.org.uk and I will be happy to talk through the roles.
