District Commissioner for Preston & District Scouts

As you will be aware, Andrew Hobson has taken the decision to stand down as District Commissioner at the District AGM. We have now formed a Search Group to help us find Preston’s next District Commissioner – and the search starts today!

I have asked Andy Acklam to Chair the Search Group and support me with the process. You will find a letter (attached) from him giving the details of the search process and how you can help us with this and have your say.

Full information can be found via the links below:

Introducing the Search Group and the Search Process

See below the forms in a word version.

Preston DC Nomination Form

Preston DC Application Form

With full information about the role, nomination / application forms (online and downloadable), which can be used to nominate others or self-nominate, between now and Monday, 14th May 2018.

This is an important role, and a key one within the leadership team of West Lancs Scouts; which is very rewarding and when shaped right, can be a huge amount of fun too.

As you will see from Andy’s letter; the search will run until Wednesday, 16th May 2018 and we would encourage everyone to engage in the process; including coming along to the Information Event at the regular May Preston District Leaders meeting (St. Peters School, PR2 9RE at 7:30pm) which will give you an opportunity to share your views on what Preston & District Scouts needs from its next District Commissioner, as well as find out more about the role.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Andy or I.

Best wishes,

Steve Morton

County Commissioner
