The BSA does use the word "member" somewhat loosely in referring to the Scouts and volunteers.

Yes, words have meaning.  But sometimes, they have more than one meaning.

 

I was an IH of a chartered organization.  As such, I was a voting member of the council.  

 

For those of you "members" who have never had a vote in the council, I can honestly say that you haven't missed much.  I can also assure you that the execs display exactly the same level of disdain to us as they do to all of the other volunteer scouters.

So a council with no camp, no hq/service center, and no scout shop?

You are describing Scouting in N.E. Ohio for the four years before B.S.A. arrived, finding ninety-nine troops --- and in Orange County, California in the twelve years before B.S.A. arrived.

 

So does this Council have training?  If so, no big deal.

Any pensions?

Rumor has it that there will be a merger of councils soon. I don't see what else they could do at this point.
