I know you asked to be responded to personally, and I will. However, the topic
of the Distinguished Commissioner Award needs to be addressed in the open forum
First, this award is equal to the Eagle for a boy. It is also not an award that
has an offical application ANYWHERE, as it is a nominated award. Your distric
t commissioner must nominate you; your district Key 3 must approve it. You rea
lly have little control on the process.
However --- in the district I am now in -- I find that Northwest Suburban has gi
ven out one of these awards to EVERY commissioner in this district (regardless
of qualifications for the award) based on the word of the district commissioner
I inherited, who IS after personal recognition as the ONLY reason to be here.
Thus --- just as the Father who pushes his boy through to Eagle, no matter what
-- there are those who push through to and abuse any of our awards.
However -- calling your status to the attention of your dist. commissioner by br
inging him/her a copy of the requirements (remember roundtable commissioners ca
n also earn this one) to ask her/him to update the entire staff on the award, w
ould be most appropriate.
Where do you find it? Commissioner Fieldbook for Unit Service, no. 3617C, page
44, copy it out.
The commissioner service IF active and working properly can be the success of ou
r movement. I personally would like to see more discussion on the commissioner
and what and how of the service.
