Best Practices

Here you will find procedures for Commissioners that are accepted or prescribed as being correct or most effective. These best practices were developed by the HOAC Council Commissioners over multiple terms.

Commissioner Recruitment

The role of the Commissioner has been around since the beginning of the Scouting movement. Lord Robert Baden-Powell recruited the first commissioners himself, to be certain that the founding units of the World Scout movement were following the program as prescribed.

Service Plans

Use this page to find the monthly service plan, previous month’s service plans, and the annual service plan.

The purpose of a service plan is to serve as a map for our commissioners and unit leadership for where their activities should arrive monthly.
