Commissioners—In the Boy Scouts of America
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 reregisters on time with an optimum number of youth and adult members.

Roles the Commissioner Plays >
Commissioners must not be registered simultaneously as unit leaders. Some commissioners may be registered on a unit committee because they have a son in the unit or because of previous personal history in the unit, but their principle Scouting obligation should be with commissioner responsibilities. Commissioners may be currently registered in only one commissioner position.
Each year, the Northeast Region, Area 3 holds a COLLEGE OF COMMISSIONER SCIENCE to train Commissioners for all levels of the Commissioners work. The next Commissioner College will be in 2015, stay tuned for more information.
