District Roundtables are held on the first Thursday of each month, with the exception of July (summer vacation). Roundtables start at 6:30 p.m. with a gathering and visiting with each other for one-half hour. The actual Roundtable starts at 7:00 p.m. with a general information session for all attendees. Right after the general information session, the Roundtable breaks into three separate sessions, one for Cub Scouts, one for Scouts BSA and one for Commissioner Service. Roundtables normally end around 8:30 p.m.
What are the Roundtable Meetings?
The Roundtable meeting is held to disseminate information to Scout leaders and to help train Scout leaders. There is a half hour common information and announcement session at the beginning of the Roundtable for ALL Scout leaders. Then the Roundtable breaks into two or more sessions for about one more hour. One session is for Tiger and Cub Scout leaders and the other session is for Boy Scout, Crew, Exploring and Varsity leaders. We sometimes have special sessions for adult training, Eagle Board of Review training, Health and Safety training, etc. We set these sessions up when we think there is a need for them or they are requested by our Scouting units.
Who should attend the Roundtable Meetings?
The Roundtable meeting is held for ALL Scouters or for any adult that is interested in becoming involved in Scouting. The sessions are sometimes attended by youth who are in OA, Senior Patrol Leaders and Patrol Leaders.
