Mark Twain Commissioner Resources

Commissioners are district and council leaders who help Scout units succeed. They coach and consult with adult leaders of Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, and Venturing crews. Commissioners help maintain the standards of the Boy Scouts of America. 

Retention Mission Statement

The retention mission of the commissioner corps is best achieved by providing an adequate number of trained unit commissioners who provide a link to district committee resources in support of a quality unit program.

Unit commissioners will focus on the following four primary areas:

  1. Supporting unit growth through the Journey to Excellence.

  2. Contacting units and capturing their strengths and needs in Commissioner Tools.

  3. Linking unit needs to district operating committee resources.

  4. Supporting timely charter renewal.
