What does a Unit Commissioner do for the District?By visiting units regularly, they help relay the unit?s needs to the district. No matter how capable your District Commissioner, District Executive and District Chairman (the district key three) may be, they can not possibly visit all of the units in the district on a regular basis. The unit commissioner becomes the district ?expert? on their units.
They may be asked by the District Commissioner to get the opinion of unit Scouters on a new program or activity the district is proposing. Or, conversely, your unit may come up with the idea that makes a Cub Field Day or Boy Scout Camporee a resounding success!
