Aptakisic Roundtable

Teach me how to Scout: District Roundtable

Roundtable Meetings are monthly or bi-monthly gatherings of adult volunteers at the unit and district level. The objectives of Roundtable are to provide leaders with program ideas, news on policies and upcoming events, and training opportunities. It is also a forum for sharing ideas and enjoying fellowship with other adult leaders. Roundtable is your one-stop-shop to find out what events are happening in your district, to discover what training opportunities you and your unit can take advantage of, and to get new ideas and advice from fellow scouters. If you have questions about anything Scouting, Roundtable is the best place to start! Look below to find your Roundtable’s time, location, and the different topics offered each month.
