Can A Youth Be Senior Patrol Leader and Crew President at the Same Time?

A mom sent in this question

Our crew wants to stop the scouts from serving as President in the crew and Sr patrol leader at the same time. Does anyone else have this rule?

I’ve never heard that rule before.

In some ways I understand it. Those are both positions with a lot of responsibility and sometimes youth overextend themselves. And it is good to spread leadership roles around.

I think this is probably specific to your child’s unit. And there might be a lot of overlap between the troop and the crew. Our crew was always completely separate from the troop and there was almost no overlap in membership, so this issue never came up.

Readers, what do you think? Have you seen rules like this?
