Administrators and Advisers

  1. The County Chair and the County Commissioner must be able to work in partnership.

  2. To assist the formation of this partnership the County Chair is nominated by the County Commissioner.

  3. The appointment of the County Chair is approved by the County Scout Council at its Annual General Meeting. The role may not be held by a Leader, Manager or Supporter where that could lead to any real or potential conflict of interest within the charity or directly related charities. For example, a District Chair should not be the County Chair in the same Scout County but could be a County Chair in a different Scout County (subject to having the time and skill to undertake both roles).

  4. Every effort should be made to find a County Chair. Only in extreme circumstances may the County Commissioner act as County Chair for a short period.

  5. The County Secretary - unless employed by the County - is elected by the County Scout Council at the Annual General Meeting every year. The role may not be held by a Leader, Manager or Supporter where that could lead to any real or potential conflict of interest within the charity or directly related charities. For example, a District Secretary should not be the County Secretary in the same Scout County but could be County Secretary in a different Scout County (subject to having the time and skill to undertake both roles).sv

  6. The County Treasurer is elected by the County Scout Council at the Annual General Meeting every year. The role may not be held by a Leader, Manager or Supporter where that could lead to any real or potential conflict of interest within the charity or directly related charities. For example, a District Treasurer should not be the County Treasurer in the same Scout County but could be County Treasurer in a different Scout County (subject to having the time and skill to undertake both roles).sv

  7. No individual may hold more than one of the appointments of County Chair, Secretary or Treasurer of the same Executive Committee. Neither may the appointments be combined in anyway.

  8. Other Administrators and Advisers may be appointed by the County Executive Committee with the approval of the County Commissioner as per POR: The Appointment Process.

  9. Administrators and Advisers appointments may be terminated by:
    • the resignation of the holder;
    • the unanimous resolution of all other members of the County Executive Committee;
    • the expiry of the period of the appointment;
    • confirmation by Headquarters of the termination of the appointment in the event of the cancellation of the registration of the County.

  10. The appointment and termination of all County Administrators and Advisers appointments must be reported to the County Secretary who should maintain a record of such appointments.
