So you know about how you can get involved at a National level, but did you know that a lot of Scouting is actually organised at a Branch (state/ territory) level? There are a few different ways you can get involved at the Branch level, although they differ between Branches: here’s a list of places you can get involved locally.
Branch Youth Councils
Members of these are appointed for a term (a period of time, such as 12 months, or two years), and attend meetings regularly during that time. There may be work that needs to be done between meetings, or they may only do work at the actual meetings. Each council has a different structure that meets the needs of its Branch/State.

And don’t forget – Rovers pretty much manage themselves! If you’re a Rover, check out your Branch’s Rover webpage for information about your local Branch Rover Council (BRC) if you want to get involved in managing your section. Find out more about Rovers management at www.rovers.com.au
