Scouting Group Therapy

I’ve never liked District Commissioner Meetings. If someone’s having a problem with a unit, the District’s already been contacted and hopefully dealt with. I vented on the miscommunications of the OSR leader guide another commissioner talked about the five calls required to get a Philmont policy question cleared and our fearless leader discussed the the difficulty of getting more Commissioners.

I looked around the table at the gaggle of volunteers who are filling two and three jobs and realized Commissioner Meetings are the closest Scouting comes to Group Therapy. If you’re a Scout and feel taxed, I strongly recommend becoming a unit commissioner, it’s… therapeutic.
