The Key to the Position

arrowheadWithin in anything, there is a KEY!  Something that helps you unlock the answer or help that you need to do the job or complete the process that is being worked on.

With all the positions I have taken within Scouting, I have looked to the training is required for the position and what recognition are available.  The recognition will have a lot more details as to what needs to be included.  Within the Commissioner Corp, this would be the Arrowhead Honor Award.

The District Commissioner Arrowhead Honor Award has a lot requirements that are to be completed within one year.   Most of the requirements are administrative and tracking goals within the District for Units and Commissioners.  This process will include Journey to Excellent, Commissioner Tools and Service Hours to be updated.

The other part of this recognition is to have face time with the District Executive, District Chair, Commissioners and Council Commissioner and understand what is needed from each party.  This process is vital and will allow District and Council resources to understand the issues within the Units.

Understanding what is needed to perform within the position will help enable everyone to put on the program as desired at every level.  Commissioner support for the units that are headed to failure will help stem the tide of loosing Packs.  Currently within Cascade Pacific we are down a lot of Packs and even the new Packs that are started are failing.  This will help them and help the youth be successful.

Recognition is not just something to obtain for a job well done.  Working through these types of recognition will help stablize units and districts, but also make them flourish.
