Contents

Use the Distinguished Commissioner Service Award to

  • Upgrade commissioner service throughout your council.
  • Recognize commissioners who provide quality service.
  • Help units succeed.

Set up the Award to help Your Council

  • The award is easy to use; no red tape, no special national application. Tailor it to your council.
  • The council commissioner and Scout executive or designee set up a simple plan so the award will strengthen your council.
  • Decide how you want to certify the eligibility of recipients and the records you’ll keep.
  • Decide where and when you’ll make the presentation—perhaps as the closing to your annual commissioner conference.

The following requirements are for currently active council commissioners, assistant council commissioners, district commissioners, assistant district commissioners, and unit commissioners:

1. Complete training as outlined by the local council, including earning the Commissioner’s Key.
2. Serve as an active commissioner for five consecutive years and be currently registered with the Boy Scouts of America.
3. Recharter at least 90 percent of the units in your area of service for a minimum of the past two consecutive years.

2. Serve as an active commissioner for five consecutive years and be currently registered with the Boy Scouts of America.
