Commissioner’s Corner

Who makes a good Commissioner?  Anyone who understands the value of the Scouting program, for the growth and development of the youth, and the benefit it brings to the community.  These include, parents of Scouts, Scout leaders (both current and past), and community leaders (not necessarily current Scouters).  So the question is- Are you willing to use, and pass on, your hard earned knowledge and experience, to the leaders of our future.  If so, serving as a Commissioner is a perfect for you. 

The District is always looking for additional Commissioners.  In addition to Unit Commissioners, who serve specific Units, there are Roundtable Commissioners, which plan the monthly Roundtable meetings, and a variety of specialized position Commissioners.  If you would like to know more about the available Commissioner positions, or, if you are interested in becoming a Commissioner, at any level, please contact me (contact information below).

All Commissioner meetings are currently held through Zoom, and are announced, as scheduled.

I appreciate the time you donate as well as all you do for Scouting, and the youth in the Scouting organization.
