Scout Stamp Collectors Club
1st Commissioner’s Conference in Zimbabwe
With the achievement of independence in 1980, the Zimbabwe Boy Scout Association was able to register directly with the World Scout Bureau (WOSM) and not through the United Kingdom, as in the past.
In the Scout Movement, a commissioner is the person whose role it is to oversee a Scout association’s programs, usually within a particular geographic area. Normally, commissioners are volunteers. In some Scout associations, the term Executive Commissioner is used to refer to a paid staff member.
The 1st Commissioner’s Conference in Zimbabwe was held on 5th July, 1980 in Harare.
