PhlmontCommissioner Week at the Philmont Training Center for 2015 will be Week 2: June 15–21. Faculty has been selected, a kickoff meeting has been held, and plans are being made for another exceptional training event this year. If you have not been to Commissioner Week before, this is the year to go. Last year we received our highest ratings yet from the feedback, and we plan to further enhance the experience.

A new conference titled “Advanced Administration of Commissioner Service” is being offered this year. The conference is open to all region and area commissioners as well as anyone who has attended the “Council Commissioner” course at Philmont. Exceptions to these guidelines can be made by sending an email to Tim Acree. Conference topics will include the significance of leaders, how to build better relationships, aspirations of leaders, mentoring and coaching, and how to leave a legacy of leadership.

If you serve faith-based or non-traditional units, consider attending the “Commissioner Service for Non-Traditional or Faith-Based Units” conference to better understand how to improve your service to those units as well as be exposed to the many offerings available from the BSA for reaching multicultural and underserved markets.

All of the position-specific conferences offered last year will be offered again this year.

Note: An additional “Unit Commissioner” conference will be offered during Week 8: July 26–August 1. If you are a unit commissioner and cannot attend Week 2, please sign up for Week 8.

See the Philmont flier for more information or go to the Philmont Conferences page. Please consider making a personal commitment to attend one of the conferences offered this year. You will not be disappointed!
