Roundtable ... for Leaders and Parents, around the table

Posted on Jan 31 2016 - 12:31pm

The next Roundtable is Feb 11 2016 - 7:00pm, with George Kay presenting on Religious Awards -- if you plan to attend, please register (click in that calendar entry, click register, pull your name from the Scout drop down list, click on it, and click the "attending" button) -- that helps the Leader know how many copies of materials to bring.  Roundtable is an opportunity for any adult leader or parent to (1) learn from each other about how to play the game of Scouting (activities and opportunities and skills for meetings and activities, how to deal with kids and adults, and more), (2) ask questions, get answers and share ideas and with other leaders, and (3) have some positive fellowship with other leaders.  What would YOU like to learn about or talk about with other leaders?  Feel free to complete this Roundtable Survey.  That’s what Roundtable should be (more in these Roundtable Resources).  ... A summary of how Roundtable might has been done in our District is here, based on feedback and volunteering.
