Southern Shore District
- Skills, techniques, information, program ideas—the know-how that makes for successful unit operation.
- To provide unit leadership with the will to do—the morale, enthusiasm, inspiration, and vision that periodically renew the desire to serve youth.
The commissioner staff meets once a month and focus on the following four primary areas:
Supporting unit growth in the Journey to Excellence criteria
Linking district committee resources to the unit
Visiting units and logging the visits into the Unit Visit Tracking System (UVTS)
Supporting on-time charter renewal
A commissioner plays several roles, including friend, representative, unit "doctor," teacher, and counselor.
The commissioner is a friend of the unit. Of all their roles, this one is the most important. It springs from the attitude, "I care, I am here to help, what can I do for you?"
The commissioner is a representative. The commissioner helps represent the ideals, the principles, and the policies of the Scouting movement.
The commissioner is a unit "doctor." In their role as "doctor," they try to see that their units make good "health practices" a way of life. When problems arise they act quickly.
The commissioner is a teacher. As a commissioner, they will have a wonderful opportunity to participate in the growth of unit leaders by sharing knowledge with them.
The commissioner is a counselor. As a Scouting counselor, they will help units solve their own problems. Everyone needs counseling from time to time, even experienced leaders.
