What is a Commissioner? Lord Baden Powell appointed men to be his liaison between units and the home office. He named these positions “commissioners.” The term has stuck.districtCommissioner

Unit Commissioners are assigned by the District Commissioner to meet or talk with Unit Leaders, Committee Chairs, and Chartered Organizations. Unit Commissioners seek to lighten the burden on Unit Leaders (e.g., Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, and Venturing Advisors) and Committee Chairs. To be able to provide help, Unit Commissioners must visit the units to learn the unit’s needs and goals.

The District Commissioner for North Star reports to Assistant Council Commissioner for the Western Section Steve “Froggy” Williams. The ACC reports to Council Commissioner Rick Tardy.

North Star needs a staff of 20-22 (depending on the number of new units started) to be considered “fully staffed.” Contact Jeff if your unit has comments, questions, or concerns about policy, procedures, programming, or frustrations. Either he or his staff will do their best to provide you help. If you do choose to register as a Unit Commissioner, please read this article for the step-by-step guide to what is required.Unit Commissioner Patch
