Commissioners are district and council leaders who help Scout units succeed. They coach and consult with adult leaders of Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, and Venturing crews. Commissioners help maintain the standards of the Boy Scouts of America.
Unit commissioners will focus on the following four primary areas:

  • Support Unit Growth through Journey to Excellence.
  • Link Unit needs to district operating committee resources.
  • Renew Charter on time.

Unit Service Mission:  “To help units serve more youth better through Scouting.”
