Dear Member
I am now actively seeking nominations from across the County for the role of District Commissioner – NORTH DOWN.
I know there are amazing people in the county and I want to ensure everyone gets the opportunity to nominate or apply if they feel they could undertake the role and make a difference to the lives of young people. In line with the County Plan we are looking for a motivated individual to lead Scouting within North Down.
The role of the DC is to ensure all Scout Groups are supported and developed to ensure young people get the best quality Scouting possible. Full support will be provided to the new District Commissioner. Self-nominations are actively encouraged and expected, let’s be honest, if you believe you can bring the right skills and expertise to the role and you are enthusiastic and motivated then why not nominate yourself?
