Commissioner 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
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!
