BRPS Venturing Crew
The crew Secretary:
Effective communication is a key ingredient in any organization. As the crew secretary, you are primarily responsible for the communication that needs to be put into writing — correspondence, records, and minutes showing decisions, plans, and publicity. It is up to you to ensure that everyone has the right information.
You keep minutes of officers meetings and crew meetings, which include group decisions and actions taken by officer. You record the names of those assigned to carry out activities including all dates, times, locations, and important details.
You keep membership records for your crew using the Venturing Secretary's Records, which will help you keep accurate registration and attendance information. You supervise all the crew's correspondence, calling the officers' attention to important items and writing letters on behalf of the crew.
You help the program vice president publish a schedule or newsletter for crew members and keep them informed about meeting plans, activities, and last-minute changes. You should organize a telephone network among crew members. You handle all publicity through school or community newspapers, newsletters, radio, television, speakers, bulletin boards, and other media.
Effective communication is an important leadership skill. You have the challenge and the opportunity to use this skill for your crew. An adult member of the parents' committee may be assigned to assist you. If you become overwhelmed by the publicity and communications needs of your crew, don't hesitate to enlist the help of other crew members. Sharing your responsibility with others is a part of Venturing. It's a quality of good leadership.
