Executive Officers & Board Members

Any local council such as INWC receives its authority to operate from the National Council that issues charters to local groups of citizens to form councils.  A part of this agreement is that each local council will abide by the Bylaws and Rules and Regulations of the BSA, and incorporate the local council in the state in which the headquarters is located.  Thus, the program of the BSA in New York City is the same as what is delivered in Los Angeles, Tacoma, Miami, Albuquerque and Kansas City.  The membership mix from one city (ratio of Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts to Learning for Life) may swing dramatically but the program is the same. 

Local governance is by an Executive Board of approximately 50 outstanding citizens representing all areas of the territory served by the council.  The Executive Board meets five times a year.  In addition, there is an Executive Committee of the Board that governs the business of the council outside of Executive Board meetings and consists of the council’s officers and other individuals appointed by the President.  The Executive Board sets policy for program delivery in INWC and makes sure funds are always available for operations but is expected to follow guidelines, rules and regulations set forth by the National Council of BSA.
