Appointment Announcement – Mississauga Area Co-Commissioners

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Area Co-Commissioners for Mississauga Area, Deanna Di Vito and Rob Byce effective Oct 1st, 2019.

Deanna Di Vito is a university student in her last year of study at the University of Waterloo. For over a decade, she’s been a youth in the Scouting program. She’s currently a rover with the 1st Streetsville Rover Crew. She’s also been a Youth Spokesperson for the organization since 2012, which has helped to grow her love for Scouting (and appearing on television!). Recently, Deanna was the Council Youth Commissioner for CEC. Deanna is excited to share her energy and passion for excessive smiling and overenthusiastic thumbs up with the Mississauga Area.

Rob Byce has brought many years of scouting adventure to the youth of Central Escarpment Council and his passion for youth engagement and great safe scouting adventures are evident when he speaks of his involvement. For over a decade, Rob has been a Scouter in Mississauga starting as a Beaver Scouter, he has also been a Section Scouter for Cubs, Troop, and Venturers and is the current Group Commissioner for 3rd Meadowvale Scouts. Rob enjoyed his first Jamboree experiences at CJ13 & CJ17 and has had several international scouting experiences. Rob recently served as the interim Area Commissioner for Mississauga and is well suited for the role.

Please join me in welcoming Deanna and Rob to this vital role. This dynamic duo will be working with Kevin Didi (AYC) and Bryan Smith (SRM) to provide support and encouragement to the Group Commissioners of Mississauga. Together this Area leadership team will be focusing on the Five Priorities and helping to ensure great, safe, adventures continue to the over 1,000 youth in Mississauga.

See you on the Canadian Path,

Dean Post
