What does the Executive Committee do? Executive Committee

Our Group Executive Committee Members can often be the invisible volunteers in Scouting.  But, this said our executive committee members (our trustees), are responsible for the management and governance of Scouting.

They work on our Executive Committees at every level (in Groups, Districts, Counties and nationally) to make Scouting happen. It might not be the most glamorous or visible role – but that doesn’t make it any less essential.

The Group Executive Committee exists to support the Group Scout Leader in meeting the responsibilities of their appointment.


The Executive Committee is responsible for:

The Executive Committee’s members consists of:

Ex-officio Members

Nominated Members

Elected Members

Co-opted Members

Ideally, between the nominated members, elected members and co-opted members, the Group Executive should include a parent of at least one Member of each of the Sections in the Group.

The Group Executive Committee may also establish any sub-Committees that it deems necessary.

Only persons aged 18 and over may be full voting members of the Group Executive Committee because of their status as charity trustees.
