Leadership Positions Contracts
Assistant Patrol Leader
As Assistant Patrol Leader (APL) of the Westark Area Council's Troop 214, I will be especially mindful of conducting myself by the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout Motto and Scout Slogan.
I will lead by example, and I make these commitments to my fellow Scouts, the Scoutmasters, and myself. I will:
  1. Report to my Patrol Leader;

  2. Assist the Patrol Leader in planning and running my patrol's meetings as necessary;

  3. Attend Troop Youth Leader Training as specified by the Scoutmaster;

  4. Attend at least 75% of all troop meetings and Patrol Leader Councils during my tenure as Assistant Patrol Leader;

  5. Attend at least 50% of all outings and service projects during my tenure as Assistant Patrol Leader;

  6. Help the Patrol Leader lead and direct our patrol at Troop meetings and other activities, and serve temporarily in his role when the Patrol Leader is absent;

  7. Help the Patrol Leader keep our patrol members informed of all important patrol information;

  8. Represent the patrol on the Patrol Leaders Council (PLC), when my Patrol Leader is not able to attend these meetings, by being aware of what my patrol members need to advance and bringing these needs to the PLC;

  9. Attend, be on time and ready for meetings and Troop activities, and tell my Patrol Leader as soon as I know that I can't make a meeting or event;

  10. Wear the proper uniform at Troop meetings and events;

  11. Help other scouts whenever possible and be especially supportive of younger and less experienced scouts;

  12. Have fun and help other scouts have fun too!

  13. Make an appointment with the Scoutmaster when nearing the end of my tenure as Assistant Patrol Leader to review my success in meeting the commitments set forth in this position contract.

I understand that I am expected to follow the above stated commitments. I also understand that serving as Assistant Patrol Leader does not provide me with leadership credit for Star, Life, or Eagle rank advancement.
