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, Varsity Teams, 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 re-registers on time with an optimum number of youth and adult members. In the Rock Canyon District, there are four types of commissioners:
District Commissioner - One per district. Oversees all commissioner service in the district. Serves on the Key 3.
Assistant District Commissioners (ADC) - At least one per sub-district/stake. Ideally, there would be one for every five unit commissioners. In our district, many of them are counselors in stake presidencies, high councilors, or other experienced Scouters . They oversee the unit commissioners' service in their assigned areas. There is also an ADC to oversee Roundtable in our district
Unit Commissioners - There should be about one for every three Scouting units. In our district, these are typically LDS stake leaders, such as high councilors, stake Young Men, or stake Primary presidencies, or other qualified adult volunteers.
Roundtable Commissioners - There is one for each Roundtable program (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity, Venturing). They organize the staff and produce the monthly Roundtables.
