Troop 45 will be electing a new Senior Patrol Leader, (SPL), at our meeting on November 9, 2015. The new SPL will serve a six month term.
Troop 45 is a boy led troop making the Senior Patrol Leader the most important position in the troop. As such the election of a new SPL needs to be taken very seriously by those running for SPL and the troop members who are voting.
Nominations will be reopened at the next meeting. When nominating someone for the position consider their leadership abilities. All nominees will be given 5 minuets to state why they would be a good leader for the troop. The troop will then vote for their new SPL. When voting you are choosing who you believe will be the best leader for the troop, not your buddy. Remember that the new SPL is the person who will run the troop for the next six month, and you as a troop need to support that leader.
The Scout Master Corps looks forward to working with the new SPL and his staff.
