Commissioners Corner

Hi Commissioners,

Welcome to the Commissioner Corner! If you are a new commissioner, I would like to thank you for volunteering to serve on the Aloha Council Commissioner Staff. Training in the use of the new Commissioner Tools reporting system can be coordinated through your District Commissioner. Assistant Council Commissioner, Karl Sakai, is in charge of Commissioner Training and Assistant Council Commissioner, Neil Nitta, is responsible for Technology/Champion for Commissioner Tools. They are awesome resources to assist new commissioners get going on unit visitations. My appreciation goes out to the established commissioners who continue to serve units and have learned to use the new Commissioner Tools to report their visitations successfully.

The quarterly Commissioner Incentive Program for 2015 will tally up the number of short visits (1 point for each visit) and long detailed visits (3 points for each visit) in awarding the top 3 unit commissioners, top ADC, and top DC with gift cards each quarter. The Council Key 3 will have the final say on any concerns related to this award incentive program.

Please inform and promote the Aloha Council programs during your unit visitations to include Makahiki, Council Work Days, Memorial Day Good Turn, Cub Day Camps, Cub Resident Camps, Aloha Council Summer Camps, NYLT, Wood Badge, and Youth Protection Training.

The Director of Field Service / COO professional, Mike Fifhause, is the terrific knowledgeable resource for our commissioners. 

Thanks again for your service and Happy Trails!

Dr. Ronald Ling - Council Commissioner
