PACK FINANCIAL OBLIGATION PLAN
September 2013 – August 2014
Pack 46’s Pack Planning Committee has determined that each Cub in the pack will have a requirement to provide $150 a year in Pack dues to cover the expenses of running the Pack.
The Cub’s Pack Dues can be credited by any amount earned through popcorn sales. This will be approximately 30% of the dollar of sales. The actual commission percentage paid to the Pack will prevail. This would mean that if a Cub sold $500 worth of popcorn, he would have met his dues requirement. If he sold $250 worth of popcorn, he would still have a $75 dues obligation. (Amount of sales multiplied by .30 equals the amount of credit)
If a Cub does not sell enough popcorn to satisfy the dues requirement, ½ of the remaining dues would be paid the first week of January and the other ½ would be paid the first week in June.
A $30 campership for day camp or residence camp, to be used within one year, will be credited for all dues totally paid by January 15, 2014.
The Cub will also be credited ½ of the commission on sales above $500 to be put in a credit towards any Scout expense, provided the expense is within one year and the expense was pre-approved by the Pack Planning Committee. Den events must be pre-approved by the Pack Planning Committee to use credits from popcorn sales.
A Scout may assign his set aside credits to another Scout (a Scout is Kind). The assignor must be a current Cub Scout in good standing and the donation must be a genuine act of kindness without regard to compensation with the donation subject to the approval of the Pack Planning Committee.
A new Scout’s dues obligation will be prorated until the end of the Pack’s fiscal year.
This does not change any Den Dues requirement which cannot be more than $2 per meeting at the discretion of the Den Leader for crafts and Den expenses.
