Our District Commissioner is Kurt Struder.
Unit Commissioner Responsibilities
The Unit Commissioner probably has one of the most demanding and important roles on the unit service team. They must be the friend, counselor, and mentor to unit leaders while operating quietly in the background. Their primary tool is persuasion, when it is necessary to recommend changes. This means that a Unit Commissioner needs to be a "people" person, a team player, one who fulfills promises, believes in the ideals of Scouting, and is adaptable and enthusiastic.
The role of the Unit Commissioner is to:
- Maintain a close liaison with the chartered organizations and units they serve
- Work to assure effective and active committees
- Encourage unit personnel to participate in roundtables
- Establish good lines of communication between unit personnel and both council and district leaders
- Guide their units in selecting and recruiting leaders
- Facilitate the on-time annual charter renewal of all assigned units
- Cultivate and maintain the best possible ongoing relationship with the unit leaders. This is probably the most important role of all!
- See that unit leadership gets adequate training
- Constantly evaluate the success of the unit in providing a quality program and communicating the status of the unit to their Assistant District Commissioner (ADC)
