To help carry out the operation mission of the council, the council territory is divided geographically into districts. The objectives of the district are to expand opportunities for youth to join Scouting, and to help existing chartered organizations and their units provide a quality program for their youth.
Each district has a district committee consisting of all council members residing within that district, chartered organization representatives, and district members at large who are elected by the district committee. The district committee elects a district chairman, vice chairman and other district committee members. The operating committee members are specialists in such areas as training, camping and finance and they help units when their specific services are required.
A well planned program with an outdoor element, led by a trained leader, supported by a good commissioner, attracts and retains youth.
