| Team Secretary
The Team Secretary is the record-keeping youth leader in the Varsity Scout team. The Team Secretary is equivalent to the Scribe in a Boy Scout troop, but unlike a Scribe, the Team Secretary conducts all boards of review for team members' advancement except Eagle. Faithful service in this position also qualifies the Team Secretary for primary leadership as Advancement Program Manager.
