After nearly 9 years in post, Charles Bow who is District Commissioner for Clydesdale District is stepping down on 2 February 2020 and we'd like to thank Charles for all that he has done to lead Scouting in Clydesdale during this time in post?
Could you succeed Charles as District Commissioner and provide inspirational leadership and support to volunteers across the District?
The successful candidate will be able to embrace the 6 key areas of leadership and management in Scouting:
As District Commissioner you will be responsible for leading the Scout District, ensuring that we provide good quality Scouting for young people. You will help take us forward as a growing organisation relevant to young people and adults alike. You will be capable of providing strategic direction and working with people of all ages.
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 and self nominations should be submitted to Gary in the regional office by Friday 28 February 2020.
For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Marion Rankin or Gary Bainbridge.

At our Annual General Meeting in November 2019, proposals to expand membership of the Regional Scout Council were discussed and amendments were proposed from the floor.
It was agreed that the Regional Executive Committee would discuss the matter further before bringing proposals back to the Regional Scout Council.
In order to help inform that discussion, you are invited to answer a short questionnaire about your views on adult and young person membership of the Regional Scout Council here.

Dorothy and daughters Alison, Kirsteen and Carolyn would like to express their sincere thanks to all Scouting friends who attended the Service of Thanksgiving for Roy's life at Killermont Parish Church, Bearsden on Monday 11th November. It was indeed a great comfort to see so many at the service and it is with deep regret that Dorothy was unable to speak to everyone on this occasion and apologises to those concerned.
Many thanks also for the cards and letters received which have been greatly appreciated and the tributes to Roy which will be treasured.
The family extend their best wishes to everyone for a happy festive season and for health and happiness in 2020.
