In a probably flawless dissertation on the role of the District
Commissioner, Mike Walton noted, "As District Commissioner, you are
THE trainer, THE organizer of the efforts to get ALL members of
your District trained in their primary position. ...."
Mike, with fear and trepidation <<G>>, I suggest the possibility
that the District Commissioner's role in seeing that all members of
the district are trained in their primary position is more
supportive than your emphasis implies. I'm quibbling with a small
point in your otherwise masterful treatise, but it is important to
help our budding Dist Cmmr prospect to know that she will have the
District Training Chair to monitor training levels, develop
training plans and programs, promote same (in no small part through
the Unit Service staff of Roundtable and other commissioners, but
not exclusively so).
Now, I would absolutely agree with a proposition that the DC's role
is primary in commissioner training and ensuring that her staff is
trained to the Nth degree. Should you want to make that
proposition, of course, sir.
