Seeking BSA Unit Commissioner

“Willing To Serve”—this is the primary trait we seek in recruiting the next unit commissioner to serve our Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop, and Venturing Crew.  The primary role that the unit commissioner performs is “A Friend To The Unit”—helping unit leaders cope with BSA administrative changes, clarifying BSA policy, and just being present to observe the unit in action.  This is not a hierarchical position, the unit commissioner is not anyone’s “boss”.  The nature of the position is advisory and collaborative.

The time commitment is 6-8 hours/month starting out, so it’s not overly demanding of time.  The unit commissioner must register with BSA, be at least 21 years of age…and, be “Willing To Serve”.  Past experience in BSA or GSA is a plus, but not required.  Contact district commissioner Mark Stoffel 703-298-8033 to sign up, or to learn more.

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
