GARDEN STATE COUNCIL, BSA
Concepts behind the structure for Council Program Cabinet:
All actions of the Program Cabinet are based upon “critical mass” or “scope of impact” - Council assists with resources, support, promotion, quality control and JTE
Critical Mass = number of participants and number/quality of staff/trainers
Concepts/Ideas/Needs identified at the district level and initially addressed there; where critical mass cannot be met, the Program Cabinet will assist in the development of the program and its expansion. When a program or event is of council-wide impact the Committees of the Program Cabinet may carry out the event or program.
Chairperson(s) oversees Committee(s) and work with the advice and consent of the VP Program and Staff Advisor
Assistant Chairs: along program lines (Cub, Scouting/Varsity, Venturing/Exploring)

District Training Chairs-at least five (one per district) are responsible for training at district level and promoting Council Committee events. Set up their committee as needed.
