Keynote Speaker:  W. Scott Sorrels, National Commissioner


Dear Fellow Commissioners and Scouters,

Welcome to the 2022 Territory 10 College of Commissioner Science! This year’s College will occur over three days, to ease the “Zoom fatigue” involved in a daylong online event.

Our theme concerns dealing positively and proactively with change. The past several years have certainly been one of the most change-filled periods the history of BSA commissioning.  While it is always rewarding to be of service, I am sure all of you have been challenged by helping all our units/leaders to respond in a consistently positive manner.  How unit leaders respond to change will have a significant impact on the future of the Scouting program and on our youth.  Creating an environment where our unit leaders embrace change not just as a challenge but as an opportunity to improve our service to youth can be one of the commissioner’s most significant contributions. It certainly is a task that is most demanding of our skills.

The 2022 College administrative team has put together an amazing opportunity to refresh established practices, to hear new ideas, and to learn how to use both to support the adult leaders and the youth that they serve. This year’s College is dedicated to helping commissioners learn about and support change, Gather with your fellow commissioners, enjoy the fellowship of common service, and recharge your energies.

We have set up the college to occur over three days. In addition to addressing Zoom fatigue, this has allowed us to expand the schedule to 9 hours of instructional time in addition to our keynote address. This will allow everyone to complete their desired Bachelors or Masters degree, and to attend other courses as well. Our outstanding staff will be offering over 50 exciting courses this year. Please note that we are not offering Commissioner Basic training as part of this year’s College. This can easily be taken online or in-person if offered by your or a neighboring council. If you have not taken it, we recommend you take Commissioner Basic prior to coming to the college. 

Before closing, I want to note that this year’s College is dedicated to the memory of Valerie Kalwas. Val was Council Commissioner for Seneca Waterways Council for 6 years and served as Chancellor of the Area 3 College of Commissioner Science from 2017-2019. She passed away this year. This year’s college can do no better than live up to her standards and values. We miss you, Val!


Yours in Commissioner Service,

Craig Kaplan, Chancellor
