National Commissioner Service Training Chair

Commissioners are Scouting’s true servant leaders. Their role in helping units bring the best possible program to the youth of America has never been more important. In order for commissioners to provide relevant and consistent service to the units they serve, they must be lifelong learners.

“An Overview of Commissioner Service” is the title of the next commissioner training conference to be held at the Florida Sea Base the week of January 20–25, 2014, at the Conference Center at Sea Base in Islamorada, Florida.

The topics covered in this conference are designed to help you bring best practices and current ideas to your role as a commissioner, whether you directly serve a unit, serve as a roundtable commissioner, or are an administrative commissioner. The course will include information on linking the unit with district and council resources, effective communication, and an update on Voice of the Scout, as well as how to support new units and manage conflict.

Plan to attend Sea Base to share your ideas and your best practices with other commissioners around the country so that we can help units deliver the “Promise of Scouting” in our second century.

Established in 1993, the Florida Sea Base Conference and Retreat Center is a premier location for training conferences. Why not get out of the cold weather next January and plan to attend a training conference in Florida?
