PLC Meetings

Posted on Sep 15 2016 - 11:04am

In order to make sure we reach our goal of running the troop under the guidlines of the patrol method, we need to have regular PLC meetings. I realize with everyone's hectic schedule that it is difficult to attend another meeting on top of what we already do, and it is also not always easy to make it before the regular meeting starts at 7pm. At the brief PLC meeting we held a couple of weeks ago, I suggested to replace one regular troop meeting each month with the PLC. Our SPL and the other members of the PLC agreed that this would be a good idea.
