How often is the “Upcoming Commissioner
Colleges” information updated?
The website posting of the Upcoming Commissioner
Colleges is updated three times each year: in February, May,
and October. Deadlines for getting information posted are
January 1, April 15, and September 15. Send the following
information to firstname.lastname@example.org: council name,
city, and state; date and time of event; event location with
address; contact information; and a Web link or PDF file with
details of the event.
The number of colleges reported has grown immensely in
the year or so we have started publishing this list. This month’s
listing is our largest yet with more than 30 colleges between
now and December. We are hopeful that the new training
resources posted 18 months ago have inspired all of you to
conduct a college.
Will the blank assessment forms be available
on the website?
Yes. We are in the process of getting the PDF versions
extracted from the Commissioner Tools, and will post them on
the Commissioner Manuals and Resources page. In addition,
we will be posting some assessment exercises for training
purposes on the Commissioner Manuals and Resources page.
What about the manuals?
Now that Commissioner Tools has been released and the
Unit Service Plan finalized, the team will be updating all of the
chapters in the old manuals, converting them to modules, and
placing them on the Commissioner Manuals and Resources
page. As you might imagine, there are quite a few changes to
these resources. We will be simplifying and, of course, unifying
them with all of our best practices. The new modules will let you
build your own “reference guide” by selecting the modules most
important to your position.
Do commissioners have a social media
Yes. Follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn. Get
commissioner announcements on social media first!
Do you have a question for the National Commissioner
Support Team? Send your questions to email@example.com at any time. Those that are of general
interest will be used in this column.
