How strict is this requirement?
The Den Chief should help at all den meetings. If they meet less often than weekly, there's nothing he can do about that. No one is expected to have 100% attendance, so it's up to the leader he's helping to decide if he's fulfilling the expectations. It would be good to keep the scout informed rather than surprise him after 11 months by telling him he's not doing a good job.
