A Venturing Crew Consultant is an adult who provides expertise to a crew's program. Consultants may or may not be a member of the Crew Committee.
Consultants are adults who are recruited (often by the crew committee), on a one-time basis. They may be members of the chartered organization, parents, or other adults in the community who are found through the program capability inventory (PCI).
A consultant is a person whose special skill or talent is needed for a crew's activity or project; he or she frequently work with an Activity Chair, such as planning the details of an activity. Many adults can serve as consultants to a crew. Some are unable to serve as crew leaders, but most are willing and flattered to serve as an expert consultant for a Venturing activity.
