At a recent troop meeting, the SM announced that scouts are expected to call him (not email or text). If he does not answer, he is not expected to return their call -- they are expected to keep calling until he answers.
At the same meeting, our advancement chair asked that scouts call her home phone (not cell) and leave a voicemail including a phone number.
How do the leaders in your troop balance the needs of the scouts with their own preferences for contact? On top of that, the no one-on-one contact rule includes electronic communication. On top of that, we are in an age where communication etiquette is fluid at best.
How do leaders get their contact information out to the boys while maintaining some privacy?
Any suggestions? Is there some BSA guildeline somewhere?
