As you may be aware, your County Commissioner, Kevin Allen, will be standing down soon from his role.

We will have an opportunity in due course to recognise Kevin’s contribution to the County and to thank him for his contribution over the past 5 years.

A search team has been set up to seek nominations and agree a shortlist for ‘interview’. The search team comprises Chantelle Down (ASL, Penzance-Madron; District Youth Commissioner), Elizabeth Henderson (County Commissioner, Somerset), David Illsley (District Commissioner, North Cornwall), Clint Lanyon (Cornwall County Chair) and Olly Thorp (Area Growth and Development Manager) in addition to myself.

Attached is an information pack about the role of County Commissioner. Also included is a Nomination Form and an Application Form. I would ask you to use the Nomination Form to nominate any person(s) who you think would be suitable for the role as County Commissioner, whether they are inside or outside of Scouting.
