Totem District

The Totem District serves all communities in southern Southeast Alaska from Kupreanof Island south through Ketchikan and Prince of Wales Island to the British Columbia border.

Districts are led by a group of volunteers and supported by a full time paid staff member called a District Executive. Districts help volunteers who work with kids provide the best program possible.

The District Committee works like a Pack or Troop Committee. The District is led by a District Chairman, Committees help carry out the mission of Scouting though Advancement, Camping, Communication, Fund Raising, Membership Growth, Service and Training.

The District also has a group of volunteers called Commissioners. In Scouting a Commissioner is a Mentor, someone who helps other Scouting Leaders be successful in their role.

District Meeting is for the members of the District Committee, Chartered Organizational Representatives, Unit Committee Chairman and interested Citizens. During this meeting plans are made and progress discussed on how to move the mission of Scouting forward.

District Roundtable

Roundtable is for adult leaders who work directly with youth to get ideas and ongoing education on how to run a great Scouting program.
