What Is a Roundtable?
Don’t let the name Roundtable fool you.
It isn’t necessarily round, and you don’t need a table.
It’s a training know-how-show.
It’s the single most important function of the district.
It’s the Scout program in action.
It’s the most effective medium for getting the program to the units.
It’s an information source for leaders.
It’s a meeting where leaders can discuss and share what works--success stories!
It’s Scout leaders having fun learning.
Roundtables are a form of commissioner services and supplemental training for the volunteers at the unit level. It gives them an example for meetings, information on policy, events and training ceremonies, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship so they will be able to provide a stronger program for their youth.
Functions of the Roundtable
The functions of the roundtable are to:
- provide unit leader with the will-to-do: the morale, enthusiasm, inspiration, and vision that periodically renews the desire to carry on.
- provide unit leaders with the skill-to-do: skills, techniques, information, program ideas, and the know-how that makes a unit operation successful.
