Council Commissioner Manual

For Council Commissioners: This manual was compiled and written from the point of view that it would be a basic, yet comprehensive, guide for someone who has never been a council commissioner. It is meant to orient someone who does not have many years of Scouter experience at the council level and who is not familiar with council operations. It also is intended to be a comprehensive manual, covering all subjects one might need to know to perform the task.


 Administration of Commissioner Manual

For All Commissioners: This manual has combined the previous editions of the Administration of Commissioner Service, Basic Commissioner Training, and Continuing Education of Commissioners. Some great additions have been made to the manual to support council-level commissioners and their support to districts, as well as some new sessions of commissioner training to be offered at all levels.


 Commissioner Helps

For Council Commissioners: A practical how-to-reference book chock-full of handy tips on helping units upgrade unit program. It suggests specific commissioner actions to help unit adults meet specific program standards and objectives. This book also includes unit commissioner worksheets for packs, troops, and crews.
