A Scouting “District” is a geographic area within the Council territory, organized by a full-time Scouting professional or “District Executive”. Districts are served by volunteer leaders such as a District Chairman and Commissioner, both of whom represent the District family on the Council Executive Board and Council Commissioner Staff respectfully.
Under the District Executive’s guidance, each district is responsible for:
- Recruiting new youth and leaders
- Educating parents on opportunities for their youth
- Training leaders
- Raising funds for the Chickasaw Council
- Providing programs such as annual camporees and Cub Scout Day Camps
- Approving Eagle Scout projects and Boards of Review
- Serving chartered partner agencies
- Recognizing success or achievement of its members
