Appointment: Council Commissioner

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Sandi Burns as Council Commissioner for Tri- Shores Council effective immediately (February 22, 2016).

Sandi’s long Scouting career started with the Guides. From there, she held various Scouter roles at section, group, area, council and national levels. Most recently, she served as the National Recognition Advisor where her outstanding contribution was recognized with a Silver Wolf. As a trainer, she delivered numerous Wood Badge training sessions.

Her professional career includes being a draftsman, an architectural technologist and a program coordinator. Since 1990, she has been a Professor at Fanshawe College where she prepared, implemented and evaluated the curriculum.

Sandi is replacing Bernie Avery who stayed on his role beyond his term until we found a replacement. We’d like to thank Bernie for his service and please join us in welcoming Sandi as a member of the National Service Team. She can be reached at

Yours in Scouting,
