3. Get Trained
Unit Commissioners are resources to the units they serve. In order to be a resource, the unit Commissioner needs to know as much, if not more, about Scouting than the Scouters they are working with. I strongly encourage each Commissioner to be fully trained. That means all the Cub Scout position training, Boy Scout Leader indoor and outdoor training and ultimately Wood Badge training, And if you also work with a Venturing Crew there is online Venture Leader training.
2. Unit Assessments and Leader Contacts
The unit assessment is new this year and the UVTS is no longer, this does not mean we can get lax in our responsibility in our visits to our units and reporting of those visit. It only means that we approach these visit in a different format. The Council, Districts and Units are all measured by the Journey to Excellence criteria; everyone is on the same playing field now. Unit visits and Leader Contact is one of the measured objectives to achieve the gold, silver or bronze level and must be inter into the computer to count.
1. Visit you’re Units and Document your visits
Unit visits is the only way to become familiar with the units you are assigned.
When you visit; don’t go empty handed; make sure you share upcoming events in your districts and council.
As their unit commissioner volunteer to help with Pack, Troop, or Venture meetings. Go camping with the troop. Lead a game or song at Pack meetings. Be a resource and always have fun!
