Phoenix District Roundtable
December 3, 2015
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the first Thursday of the month at Klein LDS Center (16535 Kleinwood Dr, Spring, 77379) at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of Roundtable is to give leaders program ideas, information on upcoming events and trainings, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the Roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.
Due December 3, 2015
Every December, all units are required to renew their affiliation with Scouting. Units are to complete the internet recharter and submit the signed paperwork by December 3rd roundtable (Klein LDS Center - 16535 Kleinwood Dr, Spring, 77379 at 7:00 pm). Some important things to remember:
Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, and a whole lot more. A trained leader is better prepared to make the Scouting program all it can be! Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional trainings offered around the council. For more information about training, contact Tamela De Maranville.

Youth Protection Training (YPT)
Every December, all units are required to renew their affiliation with Scouting. Rechartering on time is critical. It is required for units to continue registration without interruption. It is required to ensure Scouts are registered, critical for receiving rank advancement and other awards, and for insurance coverage.
What is the most likely delay in the recharter process? Expired Youth Protection Training (YPT). Seventy-two percent (72%) of the recharters submitted last year with errors were because an adult needed to take YPT. All adults must have taken Youth Protection Training appropriate for their unit within the last 24 months. This course can be taken online at My.Scouting - it only takes about 25 minutes to complete. If your YPT expires before March 2016, please renew it now.
Take YPT online
The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. Youth Protection Training (YPT) is designed to help keep our youth safe from abuse. Participants will learn the Boy Scouts of America's youth protection guidelines, signs of abuse, and how to report suspected abuse.
Classroom Facilitated YPT: All adults attending day camp, resident camp or Boy Scout summer camp must also take Classroom Facilitated Youth Protection Training, as required by the state. Find an upcoming Classroom Facilitated YPT course.
