Council and Assistant Council Commissioner

This conference is an excellent opportunity for council commissioners and others involved in unit service to become prepared to raise unit service to a new level of excellence in their home council. The conference offers a series of presentations on key topics such as the role and responsibilities of a council commissioner, resources, recruiting, organizing and developing a council-level team to lead unit service, recruiting and recognizing commissioners, and leveraging contemporary resources such as the Commissioner Tools, Journey to Excellence, the New-Unit Retention process and The Voice of the Scout. In addition, participants will participate in a series of workshops that will enable them to begin practical application of the information presented. An open exchange of ideas and experiences is encouraged among participants and conference leaders.
