Leadership

The Aloha Council is governed by a 60-member volunteer board of directors and supported by staff.

Meet our council's "Key 3" leadership team:

President, Board of Directors Corey Matsuoka

Scout Executive/CEO Jesse Lopez

Council Commissioner Dr. Jason Fleming

The top volunteer position is our council president, is selected through a nominating committee process and elected at the Annual Meeting to serve a two-year term.

The president and board hire the Scout Executive, who guides and manages our council employees. The third member of the council “key 3” leadership team is the council commissioner, appointed by the board, who directs the volunteers that work directly with leaders of Scouting units to help them succeed.

To effectively administer Scouting, our council is divided into districts, primarily by geography, and the same council leadership pattern repeats. Each has a district chair, who leads the district committee; a district commissioner, who directs the unit commissioners; and is supported by a district executive, the staff member serving the assigned territory.

Voting members of the council consist of:

  • Representatives of each of the community organizations who sponsor (charter) Scouting groups
  • Volunteers serving as board members
  • Council officers
  • Members-at-large of the council
