The commissioner is the liaison between the local council and Scouting units. The commissioner’s mission is to keep units operating at maximum efficiency, maintain regular contact with unit leaders, coach leaders on where to find assistance, note weaknesses in programs, and suggest remedies. The commissioner is successful when units effectively deliver the ideals of Scouting to their members.
The commissioner staff meets monthly on regularly scheduled dates. This is a uniformed meeting to build enthusiasm for carrying out the district's unit service plans. Helping units succeed is at the heart of everything that occurs at the meeting. The two essential meeting events are the training topic and the assistant district commissioner breakout sessions to review unit needs.
Meetings include time for assistant district commissioners and their respective unit commissioners to review the health of each unit and plan who will help meet specific unit needs during the month ahead. Priority is given to unit trouble spots that could badly disrupt a unit, deciding who will provide help, an discussing how to help. Part of the meeting is devoted to a brief commissioner training topic. Each meeting is woven together with inspiration and fellowship.
