Muskingum Valley Council Executive Board

The council body, in addition to electing officers, elects the “council executive board.” From a practical
standpoint, the council executive board is the governing body of the council, empowered by the council body to act in its stead.

Among its responsibilities are the following:

  • Exercises all powers of the council body between meetings of the council. This does not include authority to change or amend the articles of incorporation.
  • Approves the program and plans of incorporation.
  • Selects and employs a Scout executive.
  • Establishes a budget and raises funds adequate to achieve the objectives of Scouting.
  • Fills interim vacancies in offices and positions ordinarily subject to election by the council body.
  • Coordinates the work of the districts.
  • Approves the district commissioners on recommendations of district nominating committees with the concurrence of the Scout executive.
  • Approves plans of council committees.
