Suncoast Unit Commissioners'

What is a Unit Commissioner?

A Unit Commissioner is a volunteer Scouter who works directly with unit leaders to help them provide the highest quality Scouting program possible. As friends, teachers and counselors to unit leaders, Commissioners represent the ideals, principles and policies of the Scouting program while providing the resources of the district and council to the units they serve. The primary purpose of the Commissioner Team is to help units succeed.

Commissioner Corps Meetings

The Suncoast Commissioner Corps meets monthly to review the status of our units, share unit successes, and develop methods to improve unit service throughout the district. Commissioner meetings are held the third Thursday of each month via web conference.

If you have any questions concerning unit service within our district, please contact our District Commissioner.

District Roundtable

Roundtables are a monthly gathering of pack, troop, team, and district leaders. Attendees get the latest information on district and council events, training opportunities, BSA policies and learn about great available resources. Roundtable is an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders.

Suncoast District Roundtable is held the 2nd Thursday of each month beginning at 7:00pm. Roundtable meetings are held virtually using Zoom. Contact our Roundtable Commissioner, Amanda Beiter, cramis77@hotmail.com, with any questions.

Suncoast District Friends of Scouting

Suncoast District Friends of Scouting – Serving Pasco County, FL

The Suncoast District of the Greater Tampa Bay Area Council changes the lives of youth and their families through the positive programs of the Boy Scouts of America.  Pasco county has more than 1,400 young people in Cub Scouts, Scouts B.S.A. and Exploring.

 

This year, the Greater Tampa Bay Area Council will spend $234 on each of the more than 16,000 youth in programs throughout its nine-county area. Our council supports the units providing training for volunteers, developing and producing materials to recruit more youth and families into Scouting, and covering our activities with insurance. The Council also maintains camp properties, provides rangers for those properties, has a Scout Service Center for our administrative support, and assists Scouts who need help with the cost of participation.

 

With community support for Friends of Scouting, the Greater Tampa Bay Area Council can continue to support the Scouts. Fees and dues paid to the Scout units do not pay for council operations. Instead, the council must depend on the generosity of families, community leaders, and local businesses for support.

 

Please consider a pledge of support. Thank you for your consideration!
