National Rover Scout Council
The National Rover Scout Council (NRC) Executive consists of a Chair, Vice Chair and a Training and Development Officer. The elections for these positions are held at the annual NRC Conference in January. In 2012 the NRC Executive is:
- Nicky Strachan - Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Alison Maynard - Vice Chair (email@example.com)
- Ryan Beeby - Training and Development Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
This team works together to develop a strategic plan and then implement this over the course of the year. They also liaise with the Branch Rover Scout Council Chairs and the Branch Commissioners for Rovers (or their equivalent) in each state to help them with issues and ideas.
The National Rover Scout Council Chair is a member of the National Team and attends National Team, National Operations and National Executive meetings. Through attending these meetings Rover Scouts are represented at a National level and their voice is encouraged and heard.
As a result of the 2011 Rover Review 'Rovering Towards 2020', Leah Bach was appointed as the new National Rover Scout Council Adviser.
The Adviser to the National Rover Scout Council provides support and guidance to the National Rover Scout Council Executive. Leah is also the Chair of the Rover Review Implementation Committee which is responsible for the implementation of the recommendations of the Rover Review 2020.

Rovering Towards 2020
During 2010-11, Scouts Australia conducted its regular review of the Rover Scout Section. This Review was called ‘Rovering Towards 2020’. To read about the final report that was tabled at the November 2011 Scouts Australia Operations Meeting click here.
Following the Rover Review Final Report, at the June 2012 NOC Meeting NRC Chairman, Shaun Sandilands delivered the Rover Review Interim Report - June 2012, on behalf of the Implementation Team Chairman Leach Bach. The report was well received by the Operations Committee with many Branches saying work had begun in their states as per the implementation process.
What is a National Rover Scout Council Conference?
The National Rover Scout Council Conference is held annually in January, usually following the major event for the year (Jamboree, Venture or Moot). The Conference usually runs over three days and incorporates State/Territory reports, discussions and workshops, and networking activities. The Conference is an excellent opportunity for Branch Rover Scout Council Chairs, their delegates and observers, to meet with Rover Scouts from other states and share their knowledge and ideas and learn from one another in a positive environment. It is also an opportunity for States to put forward papers, plans and ideas to the council to be voted upon so the Chair can then take the resolutions to the National Operations Meeting.
