What good are commissioners (really)

Recommended Posts

I have been recruited as a unit commissioner. I have agreed, but feel that I might not be very helpful for a while, since my last involvement with scouts was 25 years ago as a boy scout. Never seen the adult or leadership side before. So, I am reading everything I can, have attended basic training and will attend commissioner conference this week.


I wanted to give back to scouting as it gave so much to me as a boy. Also, my son will be in the Cub Scouts hopefully in about 3 years. Some friends who have been active in scouting for several years thinks this would be a good role. Involved, but not overwhelmed and maybe some of my business knowledge could help. My council commissioner said he followed somewhat the same path and it was 6 months before he felt comfortable.


Question: Have I been set up for failure or can I really be useful without being involved in scouts lately? Any suggestions for a newbie to the position and also not devote so much time that my wife divorces me.
