One way to Help Units in our District is through these Troop and Pack Unit Service Plan tools (or use this SurveyMonkey Service Plan for Troops, and this SurveyMonkey Service Plan for Packs, with the same questions), adapted from the versions at my.scouting.org to include helpful resources as you review how your Unit is doing.  If you use these Troop and Pack Unit Service Plan tools, feel free to submit to your commissioner or the District Commissioner for a discussion and recognition of how you're doing!
