Central Florida Council (CFC) is headquartered in Apopka, Florida, serving Youth in Central Florida. Its primary Scout camp is Camp La-No-Che in Paisley, Florida, adjacent to the Ocala National Forest. In 1922, the Central Florida Council, Boy Scouts of America, was chartered by the National Council to implement a quality Scouting program to all youth in its geographic area. The council is incorporated in the State of Florida.
Sand Lake District (SLD) is a division of CFC. Geographically, is in the SW corner of Orange County, generally to the Florida Turnpike. SLD serves the Youth of the District with a Volunteer Corp of Adult Leaders (typically parents), supported but CFC Professional Staff at headquarters.
Sand Lake District is organized in a similar way to all levels of Scouting, from a single Pack or Troop, all the way to the National Council. A Key 3 model is employed to run District Operations. The Key 3 are the District Chairman, District Commissioner (both Volunteers), and the District Executive (a Professional Scouter).
District Chairman: manages District Administration (similar to a Unit Committee Chair). Three primary areas in the Chairman’s organization are Program, Finance, and Membership. There are many sub-committees within these 3 Areas.
District Commissioner: manages the Commissioner Corp. Unit Commissioners (UC) provide direct contact and support to Scouting Units. UCs are grouped into are regions within the District, and are report to Assistant District Commissioners (ADC). Roundtable Commissioners lead a monthly meeting called Roundtable. Roundtables provide information about National policy changes, Council Events, and opportunities for your Scouts to grow with the Boy Scout Program. All parents and registered leaders are invited to attend and ask questions.
District Executive: As a Professional Scouter, the DE supports the Chairman and Commissioner with the resources available at CFC Headquarters.
