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.

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.
