Commissioners are a unit's first line of help in Scouting. They work to get the answers to your Scouting questions. There are a number of different types of commissioners.

Each unit (pack, troop, and crew) should have a unit commissioner. Your unit commissioner should be your unit's resource as they help your unit be its best. There are also roundtable commissioners. These commissioners develop and present the program and training at your district's monthly roundtable. 

To support the unit commissioners and roundtable commissioners, there is the assistant district commissioner (ADC). Each ADC provides support and backup help to the other commissioners. The leader of the ADC's, the unit commissioners and the roundtable commissioners is the district commissioner.

The district commissioner is your district's leader of the commissioner staff and with the ADC's, work to make sure your unit has the best possible commissioner to help your unit's program. The district commissioner is also one of your district's Key 3 (district commissioner, district committee chair, and district executive).
