The Lodge Executive Committee, or LEC, consists of the seven elected Lodge Officers, 13 Chapters Chiefs, 39 operating Lodge Committee Chairmen as appointed by the Lodge Chief working with the Lodge Vice-Chiefs, the immediate Past Lodge Chief, as well as their adult advisers, the Council Camping Committee Chairman or his/her representative, and the Scout Executive or his/her designee. These youth comprise the voting members of the LEC; adult advisers are non-voting members of the LEC. The committee is chaired by the Lodge Chief.
The LEC generally meets the third Thursday of every month at the Scout Service Center (check the council calendar). Committee Chairs are encouraged to meet with the elected officer to which they report at 6:30 p.m., prior to the beginning of the LEC Meeting at 7:00 p.m. The LEC Meeting generally runs for about an hour, depending on the business the LEC deems necessary to conduct. All LEC Meetings are open to all members of the lodge.
