Commissioner Tools Implementation

Commissioner Tools is a new tool available on the new my.Scouting Tools . It’s intended to help commissioners better perform (not change) current functions by improving efficiency and easy access of information. A few examples of what can be done in Commissioner Tools:

  • Assign commissioners to units.
  • Record contacts.  A commissioner is most effective through frequent contact with their units so they can build a friendly and trusting relationship.
  • Roundtable administrations.  Plan, record attendance, and monitor effectiveness.
  • Conduct assessments to help a unit improve. In concert with the Unit Service Plan and Journey to Excellence (JTE), the tool provides the ability to record the results and build action plans that may access and incorporate district, council, and other resources beyond the unit.
  • Monitor a unit's progress. Access unit information.

You can access the training materials and more information on Commissioner's Tools here.
