Commissioner Service

Council Commissioner’s Vision Statement and Goals

As Council Commissioner, I will strive to see that the Commissioner Corps... increases the vital relationship between units, and the Districts and Council, through service to Packs, Troops, Crews, and Posts, by providing service to them tailored to their individual needs, challenges and opportunities. Goals:

  • Provide an environment conducive to increasing unit serving Commissioners in established Districts by 20% by the end of 2019.
  • Ensure that revitalization of Commissioner Service occurs in Districts currently without District Commissioners by the end of 2019.
  • Facilitate District Commissioners and their Corps as they ensure that units increase their percentage of fully trained leaders by 20% by the end of 2019.
