Former Young Men General President Becomes National Commissioner of the Boy Scouts of America


Two veteran LDS Scout leaders were recently selected to serve in key national posts with the Boy Scouts of America.

Charles W. Dahlquist, II—a veteran Scout leader and former Young Men general president—has been named the National Commissioner of the Boy Scouts of America.

A lifelong Church member, he will serve as one of the top national volunteers in the storied youth program. He is charged with helping chartered organizations and BSA leadership “achieve the aims of Scouting to benefit 2.3 million youth members the BSA serves today,” according to a BSA release.

He is only the 10th National Commissioner in BSA history, replacing longtime commissioner Tico Perez.
