Each month scouters from the district meet together for the District Roundtable. What is the Crow River Roundtable and why should you attend?
Roundtable is exactly what it implies - it really is an opportunity for scouters as a group to have an opportunity for an equal exchange of ideas. Boy Scout, Venturing and Cub Scout leaders and interested parties meet together to discuss relevant issues in our troops, crews and packs today.
There is a great deal of camaraderie developed at the meetings as there is an open exchange of ideas. There is a designated leader as the Boy Scouts, Venturers and Cub Scouts often separate but usually the leader serves as a facilitator for the attendees to share their ideas while guiding the group through the material.
Do you have questions about how to solve issues in your troop, crew or pack? Roundtable is a perfect opportunity to get different ideas and feedback to take back home with you.
In addition to the back and forth openness at Roundtable there is an opportunity to have access to council information and assistance. Also this is the perfect opportunity to have input on council and district events.
The BSA continues to update requirements and training to provide the best program for all Scouts. Roundtable is the perfect opportunity to keep abreast of these changes and make sure your pack, crew or troop is moving in the right direction.
All Scout leaders, committee members and parents are welcome to attend. Some units have a schedule for den leaders and cub/scoutmasters to attend so that their unit is represented at each meeting. It doesn’t need to be the same representative every time, all are welcome!
