John Fitzpatrick , District Commissioner, (317) 441-2321
If you are a Scouting volunteer, who can you turn to when you need help or have a question? The answer is - your unit commissioner or another member of the commissioner staff.
What does a Commissioner do?
A Commissioner is Scouting's first line of support for a unit and its leaders. The commissioner acts as a coach, friend, and confidant in helping leaders deliver the Scout program. Others have described the role as "Scouting's Customer Service Department".
Simply put, a commissioner shares his/her Scouting training, experience, and advice with leaders who may:
- Be new in their position
- Have questions about the Sugar Creek District or the Crossroads of America Council
- Be facing a difficult issue with another leader or parent
- Need help completing the charter renewal process
- Be having difficulties attaining Journey to Excellence
A good commissioner remains "behind the scenes" while supporting the success of the unit and leader. The commissioner and the unit know they are successful when the unit achieves Journey to Excellence Bronze, Silver or Gold.
