Eastern Massachusetts Commissioner College 2020

The College of Commissioner Science is a type of annual commissioner conference modeled after college courses and degrees.  The purpose is to provide ongoing practical training for all commissioners.  Over 20 courses will be offered.  Be prepared for meaningful training, good fellowship, and information on the latest Scouting developments.

Keynote: Ellie Morrison, National Commissioner Boy Scouts of America

Who should attend:
New Commissioners looking to increase their knowledge and skills, Seasoned Commissioners who want to update their training and improve their skills and Scouters who are interested in learning about Commissioners and what they do.

 All faculty and staff need to be registered as well.

There are degree tracks but also there will be a continuing education track with courses of interest to everyone. There is a great deal of change occurring in Scouting. This is an opportunity to learn about those changes but also to meet and collaborate with Commissioners from Councils throughout New England.
Remember, a trained Commissioner is an effective Commissioner.
