Arrowhead Honor

Only commissioners may wear the Arrowhead. It is a visible sign of competence. Arrowhead projects are measurements of performance. Successful completion is the result of good training. The Arrowhead Honor signifies a high level of performance and the ability to put training into practice.

To qualify for the Arrowhead Honor, unit commissioners complete commissioner basic training and the following projects:

  1. Visit each assigned unit eight or more throughout the year.
  2. Fill in and follow up on a Unit Commissioner Work Sheet for each assigned unit.
  3. Conduct membership and leadership inventories in each assigned unit.
  4. Attend six district commissioner staff meetings and provide the training topic for one meeting.
  5. Participate in a charter renewal meeting that results in on-time unit re-registration.
  6. Participate in a charter presentation.
  7. Attend a council commissioner conference.
  8. Help a unit resolve a specific problem or improve some aspect of their unit operation.

Arrowhead Honor Projects

Visit each assigned unit eight or more throughout the year.

Commissioner Work Sheet. Fill in and follow up on a Unit Commissioner Work Sheet (Pack, No. 34125A; Troop/Team, No. 34126A; Crew, No. 33660A; Post, No. 33619A) for each assigned unit. The work sheet is designed for use after a visit to a unit meeting. Use the work sheet as a unit analysis and a plan of action to strengthen any weaknesses discovered. It should not be used as simply a report of unit weaknesses, but rather as a guide to determine priorities for commissioner help.

Membership and Leadership Inventories. Conduct inventories in each assigned unit. The procedure is simple as outlined in the section "Charter Renewal." A unit commissioner must be able to conduct the inventory, interpret it correctly, and counsel the unit leader effectively to follow up on information gained from it.

Staff Meetings. Attend six district commissioner staff meetings. These meetings keep you well informed about council and district activities, provide training opportunities, and give you the opportunity to join the companionship of men and women who enjoy doing something worthwhile. See your district commissioner or district executive to get your training topic assignment.

Charter Renewal. Participate in a charter renewal meeting. You may or may not conduct this meeting, depending on the procedure used in your district. However, you are responsible for the in-time completion of the charter application whether the charter review is at a unit committee meeting or a district coordinated review.

Charter Presentation. Participate in a charter presentation ceremony. Charter presentations may be conducted in many different situations, as described in this field book. The highlight of the ceremony is the formal presentation of the charter to the head of the chartered organization by the commissioner. Help make this a meaningful event for the chartered organization.

Conference. Attend a council commissioner conference. The commissioner conference is usually held annually, and is important to your development in commissioner service.
