County Commissioner's Day

New and existing County Commissioners are invited to spend a couple of days at UK HQ Gilwell Park, which offer the chance to meet with staff and volunteer leads for core work happening across HQ, but more importantly, to give you the chance to meet with people who will support you in your key management role. We can take up to around five County Commissioners at any one time, so unfortunately priority may have to be given to new appointees if the days are fully booked. We hope you will be able to meet as many of the following people as possible:

Chief Executive

Director of Scouting Operations

Director of Communications

Governance and Complaints

Volunteering Team

Education Team


Safety and Adventure


Community Impact

Membership Services

While we hope to cover as many people as possible on this list, due to the nature of the organisation we cannot guarantee everyone would be available. We are happy to set up webinars or phone calls with anyone you would like to have spoken to but didn’t get the chance to.


The induction starts at 10am on the first day, and aims to finish after lunch around 2pm on the second day. We plan to run CC days 3 times per year, around March, August and November.


Should you require it we are able to offer accommodation for up to 2 nights at Gilwell Park, please indicate this on your booking form.
