I haven't posted to the list since my intro several months ago; I
would ask that personal responses be directed back to me, if possible.
I have something of a dilema that I am hoping to get some support or
advice on: I am just completing my fifth year of Commissioner
service. That tenure, along with certain performance criteria,
qualify me <I think> to earn the Distinguished Commissioner Award.
Unfortunately, one must "beat your own drum" to get the award. It is
presented on a Council by Council basis; my council has no formal
application. I feel very guilty about having to ask for something
that I have qualified for. (Generally, a word or two to the District
Exec or District Advancement Committee is all that is required.)
With all the recent discussions on knots, I can see that opinion is
somewhat divided on adult recognition. I am not one who actively
joins programs so that I can add another knot to my uniform (yes, it
does happen), but I find that other adult leaders that I deal with in
Commissioner service warm up quicker when they discover that I am an
experienced Scouter. (I look rather young for my 35 years.)
Thanks for the help.
I am an Eagle, but I used to be a Buffalo.
