Commissioner Service is a key part of the Scouting organization. Commissioners are district and council volunteer leaders who help Scout units succeed. In our council, they coach and consult with adult leaders of Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, and Venturing Crews.
Unit Commissioners work with individual units to help those units grow and succeed in their mission to bring Scouting’s values to the youth in your community. Commissioners take special training and attend conferences to help them prepare to help units with rechartering, communication, recruiting, and problem solving.

First, try to connect the Scout and counselor in Scoutbook. If that is successful, the counselor is registered and qualified. If unsuccessful, go to the counselor’s home council and search for their Advancement Administrators. Most will have an email address for either the Council Advancement Committee or Professional Advisor. Send an email asking if the counselor has been registered and qualified for the merit badge(s) in question and the status of their Youth Protection Training. Ask California councils if the counselor has completed AB506 training and LiveScan. The unit leader’s “blue card” signature verifies their counselor credentials verification.
