Commissioners are district and council volunteers who help Scouting units succeed. They coach and consult with adult leaders of Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Varsity teams and Venturing crews.

Commissioners help maintain the standards of the Boy Scouts of America. They also oversee the unit charter renewal plan so that each unit re-registers on time with an optimum number of youth and adult members.

The unit commissioner is a link between unit leaders and the Northern Lights Council.

The current Northern Lights Council Commissioner is Stephen Snowden, (513) 518-0620
