Second Century Service

(Key Concepts of Commissioner Service in Scouting's Second Century)

Unit service is different in Scouting's second century. Effective commissioners remain focused on helping unit leaders better serve more youth through Scouting. But to be effective and have impact today, they must be familiar with new tools, techniques, and technology available to them and know how to develop and maintain productive relationships with unit leaders and other Scouting volunteers and professionals.

Second Century Service provides all commissioners with the most current information on their continually changing environment and provides them with the knowledge, skills, and resources to have an impact. An engaging week explores all aspects of unit service, including capturing and accessing actionable information in Commissioner Tools, strengthening relationships among Key 3 members and with district operating committee members, and delivering effective roundtables.

Attendance is open to and recommended for all commissioners.
