Commissioners are district and council leaders who help Scout units succeed. They coach and consult with adult leaders of Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, and Venturing crews.
Commissioners help maintain the standards of the Boy Scouts of America. They also oversee the unit charter renewal plan so that each unit reregisters on time with an optimum number of youth and adult members.
Commissioner Service Information
Remember to add $1 per person (youth and adult) for group accident insurance.
RECHARTERING PROCESS....the annual program and membership inventory every Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop, and Venture Crew completes to verify providing a quality youth development program while retaining a majority of youth member and adult leadership. The objective of rechartering is also to update individual youth and adult information so as to have accurate and current records.
Every Unit Committee Chairperson should be the person responsible to involve the other unit leadership in this process. The GOAL to complete all the paperwork and turn in the required fee should be done well before the Thanksgiving holiday. (Remember to include your Unit Commissioner for assistance during the process.)
Three things to note:
- You may print out a "Draft Copy" to preview, then a "Final Copy" of the roster to acquire the necessary signatures.
- Do not forget to add the $1.00 per person insurance fee to your total yearly registration fees of $15.00 per person and of course the $40.00 unit recharter fee. (Boys' Life subscription is an additional $12.00 per person per year.) Submit one check for the entire fees made out to Winnebago Council or Boy Scouts.
- Also attach completed applications of any youth and-or adults that you may have added to your roster that were not listed on the website roster.
And finally, SUBMIT the newly-update ROSTER with all required signatures (Executive Officer or Chartered Organization Representative, Unit Leader (Cubmaster/Scoutmaster/Venutre Advisor) and Unit Commissioner or District Executive) and FEES to the Winnebago Council Service Center before the holiday season!
