Anton Pisani has been elected as the youngest ever chief commissioner to lead Scouting in Malta for the next four years during the last Annual General Assembly.

Speaking upon election Anton said: "I'm pleased to be elected as the youngest ever chief commissioner. I would like to thank all those who have shown trust in me and voted for me, using modern technology, in the very first online vote."

"In the past 10 years we have increased our membership by over 30 per cent and this is all thanks to you, most of our groups have never-ending waiting lists. This leads us to one of our biggest challenges ‒ the lack of adult volunteers who are willing to help out in the groups and the Association to keep our momentum going."

 Sean Bartolo, National Scout Youth Council Chair said:  "I'm really excited to start working, together with my team, with the youngest ever chief commissioner to be elected, to empower our youth members."

From youth member to chief commissioner, Anton joined the Scouting family in 1997. Anon is excited about this new challenge where he'll be supporting the Scout Association of Malta to keep empowering and inspiring as many young people as possible across Malta.

Anton has held various posts as an adult volunteer, varying from a leader within his local Scout Group of Fgura to international commissioner and deputy chief commissioner in recent years.

Chief scout, George Cassar, thanked the outgoing chief commissioner, Leslie Bonnici, for his invaluable commitment and hard work during his term of office.
