What is the Commissioner Service?

The commissioner is the liaison between the local council and Scouting units. The commissioner’s mission is to keep units operating at maximum efficiency, maintain regular contact with unit leaders, coach leaders on where to find assistance, note weaknesses in programs, and suggest remedies. The commissioner is successful when units effectively deliver the ideals of Scouting to their members following the Journey to Excellence measurement performance recognition program for Bronze, Silver, and Gold Units.

They are a team of unit specialists and roundtable specialists charged with ensuring a quality program for the youth in all their assigned units. Commissioners help keep units alive and healthy. Working with the district executive, district commissioners recruit, train, guide, and evaluate the required commissioner personnel of the district. Assistant district commissioners help the district commissioner administer the entire commissioner staff. Unit commissioners conduct most of the direct contact with units. And, roundtable commissioners train leaders and provide unit program ideas on a monthly basis.
