What is a Unit Commissioner?
A Unit Commissioner is a volunteer with some background in Scouting and the ability to empathize with and understand the problems unit leaders face when trying to operate Scouting?s programs. A Unit Commissioner is your friend and a leader whose passionate overriding mission in Scouting is to help units succeed. More specifically, units can call on their Unit Commissioner for help, advice and expertise.
- Commissioners have been involved with the Scouting program, for some time and have experience.
- You and those in your unit may be new to Scouting. You are full of enthusiasm, and eager to learn.
- Perhaps you are fumbling along in the dark, you need some training, but don?t know here to find it. A Commissioner helps.
- You may suspect there are resources. You don?t know what they are. A Commissioner helps.
- Maybe you have heard about Program Helps or seen some different suggestion pages in your Scouting magazine, but need the guidance to know when to use them. A Commissioner helps.
