The Troop Council is responsible for the management of the troop. It comprises the leaders and the patrol leaders and makes decisions about patrol composition, award standards and program.
The Troop Council meets at the start of every term, usually on a night separate to Scout night, in the 1st week of term. The meetings typically go for about an hour and set the troop up for the term. Impromptu meetings can take place through the term if required.
