What's a District?

The Capitol Area Council (that’s us) serves 15 counties in Central Texas. Within those counties, our council splits up the area into chunks called “districts.” District boundaries usually mirror school district attendance boundaries or county boundaries. The map above shows you (roughly) the district boundaries in our council service area. For a better look, here’s a link to a printable full page-size map. Or, for even greater detail, here is a Google map with filters that can display a specific district’s boundary.

Why do we have districts?

15 counties is a lot of ground to cover. We create districts to organize our volunteers and staff to better support your local unit. Put another way: if you had a question to ask, would you rather contact someone you’ve never met or someone you’ve probably seen in your community or at one of the Scouting events near you? By organizing into districts, we can assign a professional staff member to provide direct support to the volunteer leaders who love Scouting everywhere but are most invested in making sure Scouting in your community is strong.

Who in my district can help me and my Scout unit?

Each district has folks serving in the following leadership positions:

  • A District Executive; a salaried Scouting employee whose job is to help grow Scouting in your area, with duties ranging from increasing the number of young people who join to raising money to fund Scouting programs and more.
  • A District Chair; a volunteer who leads a district-wide committee of fellow volunteers and represents your area as a member of our council’s Executive Board
  • A District Commissioner; a volunteer who recruits and manages a team of fellow volunteers called “unit commissioners” who help coach and support individual Scout unit leaders

Together, this group (we call them the “Key 3”) focuses on ways to help your local Scout unit thrive while looking for additional community organizations who might like to start new Scout units.
