The monthly Roundtable meeting is the place to be to get the latest information on District and Council happenings. It is also a great time for fellowship, to swap experiences and gain information from other leaders like yourself. It's not just for leaders! Parents can gain insights to how the scouting program works, how they can make the program better for their scout and opportunities to volunteer which fit their interests and schedules.
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 Cub Scout program in action.
- It’s your most effective medium for getting the program to the unit.
- It’s an information source for leaders.
- It’s a meeting where leaders can discuss and share what works in their dens and packs -- success stories!
- It is Cub Scout leaders having fun while learning.
Roundtables are a form of commissioner service and supplemental training for volunteers at the pack level to give them an example for pack and den meetings, information on policy, events and training opportunities, ideas for crafts, games and ceremonies, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship so they will be able to provide a stronger program for Cub Scouts.
Functions of the Roundtable
- Provide unit leaders with the will to do; the morale, enthusiasm, inspiration, and vision that periodically renew 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.
Who Attends Roundtables?
- Roundtables are designed for all pack leaders -- Cubmasters, den leaders, Webelos den leaders, and their assistants, as well as den leader coaches, pack committee members, and prospective leaders.
- Unit commissioners attend roundtables in which their leaders are involved. This may mean dividing their time between roundtables for Cub Scout and Boy Scout leaders.
Each District in the Pikes Peak Council holds a monthly Roundtable meeting, with the exception of Venturing Roundtable which is conducted Council-wide for all Districts. See either your District page or the Full Calendar for Venturing Roundtables.
