Information Access Enables Growth

Commissioners should be our unit leaders’ best source of information. To achieve that goal, commissioners must keep current. Easy to say; sometimes it just seems hard to do. An array of tools is available to help:

  • The commissioner webpage 
  • The Commissioner (a quarterly, web-based newsletter) 
  • This newsletter, published at the end of the month and sent directly to all registered commissioners. 
  • News for Commissioners 
  • Council Commissioner Confabs (a monthly Zoom meeting designed specifically to for council commissioners to enable them to provide input and share best practices) 
  • Scouting Forums (the BSA’s web-based discussion site) 
  • Scouting Wire 
  • Social Media
