What is Roundtable ?


It is a training opportunity for the Boy Scouts of America and a learning opportunity for

  • YOU — the Unit Leader

Roundtables are:

  • Provide Networking with other leaders in Scouting

  • Informational — Providing leaders with the "skill-to-do."

  • Activities are useable by the units in the next month's meetings or in the future.

  • Motivational and inspire

  • NOT entertainment; it is a learning experience. Yet if it is done well, it can be entertaining, too. 


Attendees receive:

  • Flyers, announcements and information on upcoming Council events,

  • Skills and skits to use in your own program

The more members from your unit that attend, the more your unit will get out of Roundtable.


Keep your eye out for each month's agenda in your email.
