Hello out there!
I've been following this list for a couple of months and thought
that now that I need some help I'd might as well introduce myself. My name is
Greg Kelly, I'm a Scoutmaster of a new (9 months) troop here in Albuquerque,
NM and having a ball at it! My request comes from another area of interest,
I have just been named District Commissioner of a District with 52 units
and 1 ADC and 3 (yes 3!) registered Unit Commissioners. I've just finished
two years as the District Training Chair, and have come away from that
convinced that an effective/complete Commissioner staff can really make
a difference in delivering a quality program to an even larger number
of boys in our district.
My request is this - I can digest all of the manuals and
commmissioner training materials in fairly short order, however without
a history of good Commissioners, I don't have ready acess to the best
teachers - individuals that have done it. Are there any current or former
Commissioners out there willing to share their insights into such areas as
effective Commissioner recruitment and management, or Unit Lifesaving?
Thanks for your help!
Yours in Scouting
