It is important that you keep an eye on any potential developments within your County. You should have an awareness of:
- membership numbers
- the number of adult Leaders in each District or Division
- Young Leaders becoming adults soon
- Unit Leaders coming up to retirement
- opportunities being offered to girls in each Division.
You should also look externally at what the local population demographics are and what developments are happening that might change the area.
These will help inform your view of the County and develop your vision. This monitoring should be ongoing throughout your time as Commissioner. Your vision can be flexible and change with the changing needs of your local area.
This Mapping Exercise Toolkit is a handy resource to help you look at guiding within your County.
