Chief Commissioner of Queensland

Introducing Geoff Doo – Chief Commissioner of Scouts Queensland

“It is an honour and privilege to be appointed as Chief Commissioner for Queensland. I am looking forward to working with and leading the 3500 adult members across Queensland to ensure we are all focused on the quality delivery of the Youth Program to our 9500 Youth members. We have exciting challenges and opportunities in front of us!

My focus is clearly on our ‘Delivery of the Youth Program’! As an old Joey Scout Leader I am acutely aware that program delivery is key to the success of Scouting’s purpose. 

I look forward to exciting opportunities ahead along with the challenges which I know will come our way. But I also know that with your help we can continue to develop and expand the positive influence of Scouting on young people and their communities.”
