District committee meetings are typically held the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm at the Backyard Grill (9453 Jones Rd, Houston, TX 77065). Consisting of chartered organization representatives (CORs) and elected district committee members, the district committee coordinates the functions of the district. The purpose of the district is to work through chartered organizations and community groups to organize and support successful units. The end result of effective district support is more and more youth members receiving a better and better program. A plethora of district committee resources are available. All districts are responsible for carrying out four standard functions:
- The membership function strives for growth through the organization of new Scouting units and through new members and adult volunteers joining existing units and working to retain current members.
- The finance function sees that the district provides its share of funds to the total council operating budget.
- The program function concentrates on helping Scouting units with camp promotion; special activities including community service; training adult volunteers; and youth advancement and recognition.
- The unit service function provides direct coaching and consultation by district volunteers for unit adults to help ensure the success of every Scouting unit.
