Commissioners

Scouting:  A Volunteer with a Purpose – Unit Commissioner

Make an IMPACT statement by working with a unit (Unit = Pack, Troop or Crew) on being the behind the scene leadership on building youth with Character.

Bring your life experiences, education, and perspective, and in return, you will have an opportunity to combine those skills and experiences in a career that values and respects others.  Since 1910, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has helped change lives and build future leaders of this country by combining educational and outdoor adventure activities with lifelong value and fun.  While the BSA has a major focus on the development of young men, the BSA also has co-educational programs, such as Venturing, available to both young men and young women.

  • Bring your experiences to our district as a Unit Commissioner. The Commissioners mission is to keep Units operating at maximum efficiency so they can deliver a quality program to a growing membership. The Commissioners role is to develop strength within the Unit by providing program resources, and acting as the liaison between the Unit and the District and Council. This helps Units provide the best possible Scouting program, which ultimately helps assure that individual Scouts have the best opportunity to achieve their best.
  • CEO, CFO, Parent, Retired Professional, Baker, Indian Chief, Eagle Scouts, Worker-Bee alike – all of you can be a commissioner.

District Support

District Roundtables

Boy Scout Roundtable is a form of commissioner service and supplemental training for volunteers at the unit level. The objectives of Roundtables are to provide leaders with program ideas, information on policy and events, and training opportunities.

 District Committee Meetings

The entire district committee, chaired by the district chair, meets on a regularly scheduled date, usually monthly. The purpose of district meetings is to build momentum, provide group continuity, ensure good coordination, and make specific assignments to committee members. The district commissioner reports on the special needs of units and requests the help of operating committees to meet those needs.

 

 District Commissioner Meetings:

Commissioner Service is the group within the Boy Scouts of America that provides direct service to each Scouting unit (pack, troop, team, crew or ship). Commissioners are experienced Scouters who help chartered organizations and unit leaders to achieve the aims of Scouting by using the methods of Scouting. They help to ensure that each unit has strong leadership and they encourage training, promote the use of the unit committee and encourage a relationship with the chartering organization.
