Nominations Sought for New District Commissioner Team

Posted on May 10th, 2019

Nominations are being sought for a new District Commissioner team to take the lead in helping Slough Scouts provide even better Scouting for even more Young People in Slough.

We are looking for a District Commissioner and two Deputy District Commissioners who will work together to lead and manage all aspects of Scouting within Slough.


How can I help?

We know there are some amazing people within the District and we want to ensure everyone gets the opportunity to nominate people they feel could undertake the DC or DDC roles in Slough and make a difference.

Therefore, you are now invited to contribute to this search by submitting one or more nominations of persons, including yourself, whom you feel should be considered for any of these important and rewarding roles. As well as considering those for nomination you are asked to forward this to all contacts you have connected to Scouting, both currently and previously.

Who can I nominate?

Self‐nominations are actively encouraged and expected ‐ let’s be honest, if you believe you can bring the right skills and expertise to any role and you are enthusiastic and motivated

then why not nominate yourself?  If you don’t you may miss this rewarding opportunity if you are not nominated by someone else.

To nominate others or yourself please complete the nomination form below.

It does not matter if the individual you want to nominate is new to Scouting as we will welcome nominations of and from external candidates as well as existing Scouting members and supporters.

Scouting has a comprehensive training scheme for DCs and DDCs which will provide training and support for whoever takes on the role even if new to Scouting, enabling the individual to develop. What is important is for them to bring the leadership and skills that will continue to move Slough District forward.

What’s in it for me?

In the role of DC or DDC you can be safe in the knowledge that you are making a real difference to the local young people by working with a team of like‐minded adults to develop the District.

You will be responsible for ensuring each adult has what they need to be confident in their role by creating a network of support to help and guide them.

You will have access to training relevant to your role and will have an induction and support from the Regional Services Team as well as support from the County to ensure you get the very best start in your new role.

How do I nominate?

This is the easy part, please complete the appropriate enclosed nomination form to

Nominations must be received no later than 2nd June 2019.
