Commissioner's Corner
It is my great pleasure to serve as your new SKC Council Commissioner, the seventh since the founding of the Council in 1994.

To those of you who volunteer as Commissioners... to act as friends and mentors to the 700+ units of the Simon Kenton Council... thank you!

2013 is shaping up to be a key year for our commissioner service. Some of our focuses include:

* Growing our team by continuously recruiting new commissioners.

* Marketing the commissioner concept, and helping leaders and families understand our role.

* Broadening and improving our Roundtable offerings.

* Strengthening the Venturing program.

* Continuously improving the rechartering process.

Please plan to mark Saturday, August 24th on your calendar for the 2013 Simon Kenton Council Commissioner Conference. It'll be a great one!

Yours In Scouting,
Steve DeNunzio
SKC Council Commissioner

Commissioner Team

The Simon Kenton Council Commissioning Team
Simon Kenton Council's commissioning team is a group of council and district volunteer leaders whose duty is to help Scout units succeed.

They coach and consult with adult leaders of Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, and Venturing crews to help maintain the standards of the Boy Scouts of America.

Commissioners also oversee the unit charter renewal process so that each unit reregisters on time with an optimum number of youth and adult members.
