The 5th Mildura Scout Group Committee is holding its Annual General Meeting at 7:30pm on Tuesday 30th August at the Hall.
The Parents Committee’s main function is to support the leaders to ensure that we have an active and healthy group. The Group presently has a active Cub Pack, Scout Troop and Venturer Unit with a total of about 50 youth members (and we are still growing!). Parents of members from all sections are encouraged to get involved.
- controls group finance,
- maintains (and cleans) the hall and grounds,
- completes submissions for special funding, organises fundraising and social activities,
- seeks potential leaders,
- promotes the group and Scouting in community to ensure growth in membership.
The Parents Committee is elected at an Annual General Meeting usually held in August of each year. Members are required to attend meetings held each month. Visitors are welcome.
This Committee includes a chairperson, treasurer and secretary. Ideally we would like a quarter master, hall maintenance coordinator, grant submission coordinator and fundraising coordinator.
Joining the Parents Committee is one of the ways in which interested parents can support their child's Scouting without the weekly commitment of being a Leader. It is also a good way to get to know other parents and to find out what is happening in the Group.
