When charter time rolls around, you should be the one who handles the rechartering and don't recharter any of the committee. BTW, have they attended training?

This upset them because it was pointed out to them that they cannot just waive requirements without doing the proper paperwork and getting things approved. Well that did not go over well at all. They wanted to remove me then.
After that happened, things went south. The problem that I have with the Troop Committee is they have no clue as to what the Scouting program is. They have no idea what the 3 aims and methods are, turning in the paperwork for fundraisers, program planning, training the boys, etc. I can go on and on about this. I did not mention that not one of the Troop Committee is trained. They are either too lazy to do it or just will not complete it. There is one exception to the Troop Committee. The fundraising coordinator has been taking the online training as she is able to and is doing an outstanding job! But she is the only bright spot. She is also the only Troop Committee member that engages the boys on an almost weekly basis. She comes in and checks on what is happening whereas we do not see the others except for Troop Committee Meetings.
I might post more about this later. It took me almost 12 hours to calm down after the Troop Committee meeting. I find it quite funny that the ASMs and the TC member are on the same page with the rest of the Scouting movement with me. They were wondering why I was always in a bad mood after coming from the Troop Committee meetings. After they attended, they realized that I was being set up month after month for confrontation with them. If I was not doing my job as Scoutmaster, would I have kids showing up week after week?
BTW Jerry, I am talking with Pastor Marge about this.
