Phoenix District Roundtable
May 12, 2022 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month (starting January 2022) at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable will be held inside Cypress Creek Christian Church (6823 Cypresswood Dr, Spring, TX 77379). Face coverings are recommended.
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. Roundtable breakouts are a great place for leaders and parents to come together to share so everyone can learn more about Scouting.
- Cub Scout breakout focuses on the needs of leaders and volunteers in packs. Leaders are not on their own and don't have to reinvent the wheel. Learn about the resources available to help put together a top-notch program.
- Scouts BSA breakout focuses on leaders and volunteers in troops, crew, ships to share quality resources, knowledge, and skills that enable and motivate leaders to deliver an outstanding program. Parents and leaders of Webelos Scouts crossing over into troops are also invited.
- Order of the Arrow breakout is for members of the Order of the Arrow.
- Special interest focuses on a special topic each month.
