Monthly gathering of Scouters from throughout the District sharing information and ideas about activities, projects, outings, and other Scout related topics. Each month, discuss the upcoming monthly themese of Scouting, explore through resource lists, invited speakers, group discussions, and hands-on activities. The aim of the Scouting Roundtable is to provide the will and the skill to do. If unit leaders have these two things, they can succeed, and continue to do so. The will to do in the form of morale, inspiration, enthusiasm, and vision is distributed regularly. The skill to do in the form of skills, program ideas, techniques, and information is taught a piece at a time. In sum, a roundtable is fun, practical, inspiring, full of skills, loaded with techniques, and brimming with program ideas.
