March Roundtable and Other Announcements

Posted by gbeck on Mar 11 2014 - 7:50pm

Your Commissioner Staff and District Committee have a great Roundtable for you this Thursday March 13th.

Although Scouters are nvited to attend to Roundtable each month – I understand that some of our new Scouters have never attended a Roundtable. Needless to say, they don’t know what they are missing! So let me attempt to explain Roundtable to the uninitiated.  Here goes: 

Roundtable is FUN!  

Roundtable provides practical training on a monthly basis without any hassle. 

Roundtable provides adult leaders an opportunity to share ideas and activities with leaders from other units. It is a source of continuing information. 

Roundtable is for EVERYONE - from novice to expert.  Come and "share what you know, learn what you don't.

Every Roundtable is divided into segments called “breakouts,” with specific objectives for the Boy Scout Roundtable breakout and the Cub Scout Roundtable breakout.
