    Census: Do Occasional helpers go on the census?

    I think the website is ambiguous. Excluding the fact that everybody is registered on Compass now rather than the Group Secretary, from the Group return:
    All members of the Group Executive are required to be Members or Associate Members and should be added here along with all other adult Member or Associate Members registered directly with the Group Secretary.
    That would seem to exclude OHs. Correct?

    OHs are not members and do not go on the census.

    Thanks. Somehow I seemed to recall they did go on in previous years.

    Whilst they may not need to go on the official Census, a sensible GSL who collects the census details and shares them with their section leaders would include OH (and the expiry date of their DBS) since that is the only way that a section leader knows who the OH are and whether they can attend overnight experiences. Of course if a certain system had been implemented correctly then this would not be an issue.

    That is a sensible thing to do but has nothing to do with Census...
