Philmont Training Center


Starting, Sustaining, and Growing Units

The BSA's vision is to prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law. That vision can't be fulfilled without an adequate number of local units. This conference prepares commissioners, membership team volunteers, and commissioned professionals to work together to establish the units needed to serve youth and empowers those units to grow and thrive. It also helps them to work together to enable youth to continue in Scouting when an existing unit ceases to exist or when a charter partner elects not to continue its relationship with the BSA. Participants of this conference will leave prepared to help Scouting grow and better serve more youth. Added Bonus: A Commissioner Week conference that provides the opportunity to meet and interact with our national commissioner and members of the national commissioner service team while networking with commissioners throughout the country.
Best For: All commissioners, membership growth volunteers, and commissioned professionals.


Week 1: June 9-15
