¥ Help set a good example for the boys by behavior, attitude, and proper uniforming.
Every pack is under the supervision of a pack committee, consisting of a minimum of three adult leaders. They must be at least 21 years of age, selected by the chartered organization and registered as an adult leader of the BSA. One of these is designated as pack chairman.
Obviously, with a committee of three, members must assume responsibly for more areas of service than with a committee of seven or more, where the responsibilities can be spread around. Although packs can and do operate with a minimum of three committee members, experience proves that a larger committee generally ensures a stronger, more stable pack.
The Committee Members are responsible to :
¥ Approves leaders' membership in the pack.
¥ Recruit the Cubmaster and one or more assistant Cubmasters.
¥ Provide adequate and safe facilities for pack meetings.
¥ Coordinate the pack program with the program of the chartered organization through the Scouting coordinator.

A strong pack committee will have individual members assigned to such areas as recordkeeping and correspondence, finance, advancement, training, public relations, membership, and reregistration.

The pack committee chairman decides how the responsibilities should be divided and makes assignments to committee members.
