Council of Chiefs

The Council of Chiefs (COC) is the leadership body of Section E3. All section officers and member lodge chiefs serve as voting members of the COC, and non-voting members include the section adviser and section associate advisers, section committee chairs and advisers, and lodge advisers.

COC meetings are held three times per year: twice before Conclave for event and budget planning, and once during Conclave. Anyone is welcome to attend, though COC meetings typically have very low attendance because of the content that is discussed. If you’re interested in attending, please get approval from your lodge chief and adviser first so we can have an accurate count of how many people will be there.

The first COC meeting of the year is normally held on-site wherever Conclave is to be held, and the second one is typically held at the Middle Tennessee Council Scout office in Nashville, TN. Meeting minutes are made available after each meeting adjourns—look for them so you can see how Conclave will go. We are going to plan a great year!
