What is the District?
- The Membership function strives for growth through the organization of new Scouting units and growth through new members joining existing units.
- The Finance function sees that the district provides its share of funds to the local council operating budget.
- The Program function concentrates on helping Scouting units with camp promotion; special activities, including community service; training adult volunteers; and youth advancement and recognition.
- The Unit Service function provides direct coaching and consultation by district volunteers for unit adults to help ensure the success of every Scouting unit.
The membership, finance, and program functions are carried out by members of the district committee. The unit service function is carried out by the district commissioner staff.
The district chairman is a member of the council executive board. The district commissioner meets with the council commissioner and other district commissioners on a regular basis.
A Scouting district is a geographical area of the local BSA council, determined by the council executive board. District leaders mobilize resources to ensure the growth and success of units within the district's territory. Each District is responsible for carrying out four standard functions: membership growth, finance, program, and unit service.
