Deben District Scouts


The aim of Exec meetings is to deal with fundraising, insurance, premises, money coming in and going out, and looking after our equipment.


There are usually three or four meetings per year, taking place in members’ homes or in the Scout HQ.

The District Commissioner and the District Chairman are invited to Group Executive meetings (but they don’t attend often). Likewise, the County Commissioner and the County Chairman are invited to District Executive meetings.


Minutes of all committee meetings should be kept and, when they need archiving, they should be stored at the Suffolk Records Office.


Discretion should be observed at all times in relation to discussing individual children, their behaviour, difficulties, family circumstances and all matters normally considered private or sensitive.

Pertinent matters of this type may be discussed at Leaders meetings, but any report to the Executive Committee should be in general terms (no names).
