Meet Our Council Commissioners
The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
As commissioners, we share the BSA’s mission: To prepare youth to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
What is a Commissioner
Commissioners serve as resources for the Packs and Troops. They assist the Units with problem solving, setup, questions about leadership roles, how to recruit/where to recruit. The Unit Commissioner serves as the liaison between the Units and Council.
We are looking for new Commissioners
Are you a former scout or leader? Active in your community? Looking to help carry on the experiences you or your children have had through scouting? We need you! Unit Commissioners serve as coaches for units. Your time commitment is not that of a unit leader, but a coach, checking in with units and helping them succeed.
How does one become a commissioner? Speak with a District Commissioner (listed above), complete the online training (online), and accept an assignment to work with 1-3 Units.
This includes the District Commissioner and the Assistant District Commissioners. Their primary responsibilities are recruiting, training, guiding, and evaluating the Commissioner staff. In larger Districts you may find that they are are line managers and specialty advisors within the Commissioner staff. For example you may have Assistant District Commissioners that manage several Unit Commissioners in a Service Area and others that specialize in rechartering, training, or the administration of Commissioner service.
Unit Commissioners are the ones who work with individual Packs and Troops. Their passionate, overriding mission in scouting is to help units succeed. If you don’t know your Unit Commissioner, send an email to your District Commissioner who will respond promptly.
Roundtable Commissioners provide unit leaders with resources and training in program skills through regularly scheduled roundtable meetings.
