Could you support and motivate nearly 250 volunteer adults to deliver Scouting to our youth members. We're looking for a volunteer District Commissioner to lead a support team and coordinate the work of Clydesdale District.
The successful candidate will be able to work well in meetings and on a one to one basis, provide positive management for local Scouting and develop relationships with volunteers in the organisation and external agencies who can enhance our work.
It's a key part of our support structure and a lot of hard work but the reward of seeing young people enjoy the adventure of Scouting is something that can't be beaten.
Nominations should be submitted using this form to Gary Bainbridge at the Regional Office by 29 November 2010. For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Stuart Imrie on 0141 639 2243.Tweet

Carluke Cubs & Scouts enjoyed and activity packed weekend at Auchengillan last month.
Despite the somewhat temperamental weather, the Group took full advantage of the many activities on offer at Auchengillan and were joined by their Beaver Colony for the day on the Saturday.
Assistant Scout Leader, Maggie Hogg said 'I had a really great weekend and just love Auchengillan, the leaders always have as much fun as the young people which is what Scouting is all about.'

As the Commonwealth Games 2010 come to a close this week, Eyes are turning to Glasgow who will be hosting the event in 2014. But as the games close, The Commonwealth experience is just starting for Richard Bolt. Richard, an Assistant Cub Scout Leader with 16th Glasgow (1st Milton of Campsie), is away to Delhi as part of the 352 member cast to represent The Scout Association at the handover ceremony from the Delhi games to the 2014 event in Glasgow.
Richard will be one of 352 members of the Glasgow 2014 handover cast in Delhi this Thursday. They have been rehearsing 9am until about 7pm every day for 3 weeks, to be prepared for the 8 minute performance (That is about 17 hours of rehearsal per minute!)
Richard has also been involved in Glasgow Gang Show for many years and claims that the skills he learnt there are very useful for this performance!
Also appearing in Gang Show this year, Richard has only missed one rehearsal due to his 2014 Commitment – He was in Delhi at the time!
He also claims that general Scouting skills have helped him take on this mammoth task,
“Walking into a room full of strangers, I just treat it like going to a big camp. You are all there to have fun and share a common purpose. The experiences you get through Scouting definitely make talking big challenges like this easier!”
Richard will be representing the Scouts of Glasgow and of the World in front of the 60,000 people in the Stadium and the expected One Billion TV Viewers worldwide.
“If it wasn’t for being involved with Scouting, and with Glasgow Gang Show, I would never have had the opportunity to do anything like this. It is a once in a lifetime adventure”
You can see the performance as part of the handover ceremony on Thursday 14th of October 2010 at approximately 3:30pm on BBC1 and on the BBC Website
