The Unit Council is made up of selected Venturers who are responsible for managing Unit affairs including preparation and running of the program of activities, the appointment of activity leaders, finance of the Unit, supervision of Venturer Scout Award Scheme standards and general discipline. Meetings are held at least once a month and separate to the Unit meeting. Yet they are also held briefly prior to and after the Unit meeting to check on progress.
The Unit Council is also responsible for the initial drafting and annual review of the Unit Constitution. The Constitution is a set of rules and guidelines formulated by the Venturers themselves.
