What is the Patrol Leader Council?
The Patrol Leader Council is the group of elected leaders for the Troop and its Patrols. This group is run by the Senior Patrol Leader (SPL), the Assistant Senior Patrol Leader (ASPL), the Patrol Leader (PL) of each patrol and the Assistant Patrol Leader (APL) of each patrol.
Who makes up the Patrol Leader Council?
All elected leadership make up the council. Those roles are:
The Patrol Leader Council plans all events for the Troop. They decide on the hikes, camping, biking, caving and all kinds of scout trips. The Patrol Leader Council also makes sure the entire Troop is meeting its goals for sales events (like popcorn sales), service events (like Scouting for Food), and district events (like OA, Camperall, YLT). The Patrol Leader Council is very important to a smooth running Troop.
When does the Patrol Leader Council meet?
The Patrol Leader Council will usually meet on the first Monday of each month or at a time designated by the Scoutmaster. This time is the same as our usual Troop Meeting and should make it convenient for everyone.

We are not experts. We're your next door neighbors. We're not perfect, we are just parents like you. We don't have anymore spare time or energy than you do, we all work full time and juggle our families and our schedules and try to keep it all together as best we can.
The only difference between us is that we believe in what Boy Scouting has to offer. So much so, that we contribute our time, our miles, and our talents to help our sons and your sons grow in Scouting.
We complete authorization forms, budgets, and registrations, and fill our homes with boxes of paperwork that you will never see. We are required to take 13-20 hours of training the first year, as well as attend Roundtable meetings every month, so that we can meet our greatest challenge- providing a variety of programs which meet the needs and interests of very individual boys.
We try to involve parents who want us to understand that they don't have the time to drive on outings or help at meetings. We rejoice at the generosity of others. Sometimes we find ourselves going in too many directions, We run out of steam. We have memory lapses. Communication lines break down. Time slips by. But that doesn't mean we don't care.
So many evenings we spend on the phone, seeking advice and support from other leaders when disappointments or problems occur. "How do I keep my boy's attention?" "What are your ideas for the ceremony?" "How do you work with boys in three different grades?"
Our dining tables are covered with bits of rope, menus, tour permits, and merit badge cards for each and every boy in the troop. A couple of them won't show up, and don't think to call and let us know. Sometimes we feel unappreciated.
Yet, these boys can fill us with pride at their determination and accomplishments. Their smiles light up a room; and when they say "Thank You" it makes it all worth it.
We help these boys build relationships. Some struggle more than others. Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly... is encouraged by the Scout Oath and Law. And sometimes we too must learn these lessons over and over again with the boys. But we are willing to keep learning.
Please be patient if we appear distracted or frustrated or overwhelmed at times. Forgive us if we are not the kind of Boy Scout Leader you would be if you had the time. Instead, provide us with encouragement or offer your help. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.We are, after all, only mentors...role models...leaders. Volunteers who have taken an oath to give these boys, your boys, the most precious gift we have to offer- the gift of time.
