PCC- Group Commissioner Event


Council Commissioner John Geyer’s Visions in creating the event:

 

We’re excited to invite all Group Commissioners in the PCC to come back together at this event as a first step in creating fun, healthy and vibrant groups and in turn a great Pacific Coast Council.  Come with an open mind to learn, listen and most importantly share your thoughts on where things are and what positive steps we can all take together to tackle issues and generate a feeling of camaraderie for our leadership and youth.  

As leaders, we are all here because we care about the amazing value that scouts offer to our youth. Scouts is wholesome alternative for our youth.  An environment where they learn to give back to their communities, find adventure in the outdoors, explore their spirituality, expand their minds and become socially and emotionally mature as they form new friendships that can last a lifetime.

Our first annual event, it is our goal that we work together to build an event that delivers great value to every attendee. We very much appreciate your consideration to attend, your energy to actively participate throughout the day, and open mind to hear new ideas and find positive ways to make them work for you and your group.  

The Events

This event enabled the Pacific Coast Council Group Commissioners to have the opportunity to connect and share ideas hoping to build even better, even stronger Council.  Eleven different sessions that were requested by the Group Commissioners were offered help our GC’s build healthy groups.

 

The following are the list of topics covered: Volunteer Support, Program Quality, Safety Leadership, Money Management and Administration using Technology.  Click "here" for some of the session slides presentations.

 

The PCC Group Commissioner event was very well attended with 40 groups represented. More importantly, the Youth Panel and Reviving Rovers sessions allow the voice of the Youth to be heard.

 

Testimonial from Scouts Canada CEO, Andrew Price

 

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend a mini-conference specifically targeted at Group Commissioners in Vancouver; close to 40 Groups were represented, and 35 Group Commissioners participated directly.  It was great to see the Pacific Coast Council Key 3 in action, connecting with Group Commissioners with the aim of linking them back to our Mission and vision for a stronger Scouts Canada.  A number of relevant workshops were held, helping further equip our Group Commissioners to be more effective in their role.  One of the workshops was even facilitated by a GC Orientation graduate.  The review at the end of the day reflected back a strong commitment to youth involvement as well as broadening the network further, both steps that will undoubtedly lead to greater engagement and ultimately healthier Groups.  Kudos to John, Simon, Vincent, Evelyn and Sabinah for facilitating this important opportunity.
