Chartering Organizations and Scouting
Every scout unit, Troop, Pack or Venture Crew is operated by an organization granted a charter by the Boy Scouts of America. Charter organizations conduct the Scouting program according to its own policies and guidelines as well as those of the Boy Scouts of America. The charter organization appoints a Charter Organization Representative (COR) to serve as the primary interface with the troop. Our chartering organization is Hancock United Church of Christ. Our Charter Organization Representative is Mr. Jim Weston. Jim is a long time member and lay leader at Hancock Church. He also served many years as the Chairman of the Troop Committee at Troop 114 in Bedford, MA. The Charter Organization approves all leaders in the unit, provides facilities and resources for the Troop and helps promote a well-run Scouting program.
