Our troop always needs Merit Badge Councilors.  The most important needs are councilors for the Eagle required badges as they take time and it is nice for the troop to do them together.  
You do not need to be a master in any of these subjects, just willing to make sure the boys complete the requirements.  The Eagle required badges are as follows and the Bold badges are the one the troop currently does not have councilors for, and of course having more than one counselor for any merit badge is always a bonus.  You can also become a merit badge counselor for any of the other 100+ merit badges.  Full list of Merit Badges.
