Over the weekend of March 14th, the 2015 Cascade Pacific Council held it’s annual Commissioners College. I believe that I have been to Commissioners College now four times. I have now gotten my Associate, Bachelor and just this year Masters in Commissioner Science. I took the Roundtable Commissioner Basic Training in 2013 a full six months or so before I became the Cub Scout Roundtable Commissioner. This year I also taught a course on Commissioner Tools to everyone.
As many people know who have read this blog for awhile, I believe in getting all the Training you can for the position that you currently hold. I also believe in learning about other positions since you might be in that roll soon or you might need to help someone with information about it.
My next stop along the Commissioner Training path is to go for my Doctorate. I am already starting to help another Scouter with his Doctorate since I have access to the Council website as the Ast Council Commissioner in charge of Communications and Commissioner
The good thing to keep in mind, is that as I go through this process, there is the Doctorate of Commissioner Science Knot award. I have completed a lot of this already, but have a long way to go. I should be completing the Roundtable Commissioner’s Knot in the fall of 2016 as I already have the Arrowhead for it.
During the time I was writing this, the monthly Council Commissioner Cabinet met at Council. The topic of commissioner College came up. Several people asked if we could move the date due to other Council/District/Unit conflicts. Also if we could look at other topics to be incorporated into the college. Plus it was even asked if it could be joined into the Commissioner Retreat. All were positively received.
I am looking forward to working on my Doctorate, learning a lot more and again teaching a class.
