Commissioner College in American Fork

Hey Commissioners! What are your new year’s resolutions going to be this year?  Loose weight?  Exercise more? Finally get around to doing that thing you have been putting off? What ever you are thinking about let me suggest one for you… Get more training!  We have all heard the saying that every boy deserves a well trained leader.  Well we also believe that every leader deserves a well trained commissioner.  And we should all know that training never really ends, there is always more we can learn.

In the Utah National Parks Council you can start the year off right by attending the Commissioner College in American Fork on Saturday January 20th.

It’s a full day of training specifically targeted towards Commissioners.  Unit Commissioners, District Commissioners, Assistant District Commissioners (ADC), Roundtable Commissioners etc.  If the word “Commissioner” appears in your registered position there are classes here for you.  (In fact even if the word commissioner doesn’t appear in your title and you just want to come learn, you are welcome to attend) You will have the option to order a lunch when registering or you can bring your own.  Either way plan to enjoy the company of other commissioners in a fun and information filled day that will hep you be that well trained commissioner that the leaders in your area need.

Some of the classes being taught in January are:

  • Unit Commissioner Basic Training – Brand new?  This is a good place to start
  • BCS 104 Unit Visitation
  • BCS 113 Servicing Scouts with Disablities
  • BCS 129 Empahsizing Duty to Gd
  • MCS 324 Preventing Commissioner Burnout
  • CED 718 Effective Communication
  • And many more!

You can read these past articles if you want a little more information about Commissioner College in general or maybe you would like to learn more about the awards/degrees you can earn.

Or maybe you are ready to REGISTER for the January 2018 College – do it today!

Can’t make it to the American Fork college in January?  The Utah National Parks Council organizes four live colleges each year.  Different courses are provided at each so you can continue your training all year.  Attend one, two, three or all four.
