Welcome Scouting members!
Located within the Seneca Waterways Council are areas called Districts. A district is a geographical section of a council, determined by the council executive board.
Each district is led by a committee. District leaders mobilize resources to ensure the growth and success of units within the district’s territory. All districts are responsible for carrying out four standard functions: membership, finance, program, and unit service.
The membership, finance, and program functions are carried out by members of the district committee. The unit service function is carried out by the district commissioner staff. The district chairman is a member of the council executive board. The district commissioner meets with the council commissioner and other district commissioners on a regular basis.
The chairman of each district operating committee may be a member of the corresponding council committee. The district chairman, one or more vice chairmen, and district members at large are elected by the district committee from a slate agreed upon and presented by the district’s nominating committee. Newly elected officers and members at large take office immediately upon election.
