Please welcome Griffin Roblyer to his new role as Chair for Commissioner Engagement on the National Commissioner Service Team!
The Commissioner Engagement Group develops tools and techniques to support local councils and districts in recruiting commissioners from both inside and outside the BSA, encouraging their continuing training and development, and recognizing their achievements and impact.
Griffin is a long-time scouter beginning as a youth where he earned his Eagle Scout, and was recognized as a Vigil Honor Member of the Order of the Arrow. As an adult, he earned his Doctorate from the College of Commissioner Science and has been privileged to scout in what is now the Michigan Crossroads Council, Chief Seattle Council, Tidewater Council, and National Capital Area Council. Griffin now serves the Great Smoky Mountain Council in Knoxville, TN as an Outdoor Ethics Advocate and Assistant Council Commissioner.
Like many scouters, Griffin has worn various hats throughout his years, volunteering including multiple unit roles in Scouts BSA and Cub Scouts, Day Camp Director, Asst. District Commissioner, District Commissioner, Asst. Council Commissioner, and Dean of Academics for his council’s College of Commissioner Science. Griffin also served as his council’s Equity & Inclusion Training subcommittee chair where he worked to develop trainings to ensure all scouters felt safe, welcome, and heard.
Outside of scouting, Griffin works as a Professional Engineer (a career choice that was inspired by the Environmental Science merit badge). He loves hiking, backpacking, and camping as well as traveling across the US.
