Commissioner Service

 

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. They also oversee the unit charter renewal plan so that each unit re-registers on time with an optimum number of youth and adult members.

 

There are three types of commissioners:
 

  1. Administrative commissioners include the council commissioner, assistant council commissioners, district commissioners, and assistant district commissioners. Their primary responsibilities are recruiting, training, guiding, and evaluating the commissioner staff.
  2. Unit commissioners are assigned to one or more units, which they serve and counsel. 
  3. Roundtable commissioners provide resources such as program skills and other help for unit personnel at regularly scheduled roundtables.

COMMISSIONER'S PLEDGE

Just as Cubs have their Cub Scout Promise, and Boy Scouts have the Scout Oath, Commissioner's have their Commissioner's Pledge. See the words that guide the Commissioners here
