A Day in the Life of a District Executive
The responsibilities are as broad as the tasks are varied and no two days are the same for a typical District Executive. No matter where they work, in the city, the suburbs, or the country side, one thing is for certain- this is anything but an “office” job. Our field staff are typically found in the community, not behind a desk. The job of the professional Scouter is to recruit, train, and motivate the BSA’s adult volunteers and to support and grow local Scouting units. In addition, they work with community leaders to rally public support for the Scouting programs. Professional Scouting responsibilities are cyclical and depending on the time of the year will determine the priorities and key tasks.
