WA Rover Council:
What is WARC? WARC is the major governing body of the Rover Section in Western Australia. As Rovers are aged between 18-26 years of age and are therefore adults, we are the only self-managing youth section within the movement. The aim of the council is to encourage and promote the development of the Rover Section within Scouts Australia and the community for the benefit of Rovers, Rover Units, society and Scouting.
Who can be involved in WARC Meetings?
WARC Meetings consist of the WARC Executive: Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary, Public Relations Officer, Treasurer, Program Officer, Training and Development Officer and the Branch Rover Advisor as well as two delegates from each recognised Unit in Western Australia. However, if you are a registered member of Rovers in Australia you may sit in on the meeting, just not at the table.
Why should you go?
WARC is a fantastic way to meet new people, see what other Units are doing, find out what is going on and introduce yourself to new leadership positions. As well as being able to get involved in discussions and help to continuously shape the Rover Scout section in Western Australia.
Where and when do WARC Meetings occur?
WARC Meetings are held on the first Sunday of each month (except in the instance of a long weekend, where meetings are pushed back a week). The meetings take place at 7pm at the Scouts WA Branch Headquarters – 133 Scarborough Beach Road, Mount Hawthorn. Parking can be found across the road in the public car park or behind the pub. For more information on meeting dates please email email@example.com
What other councils are there?
WARC is not the only governing body of the Rover section, above WARC is the National Rover Council (NRC) who represent Rover Scouts at a national level. There are also Branch Youth Councils (BYC) in each state. For more information, check out the “Councils” link in “Resources”.
For more details on the specifics of WARC and the governance aspects, you can read the Constitution and Standing Orders in the “Resources” page.
