YOUR MONTHLY DISTRICT MEETING
Whether you're new to Scouting or you've been involved for years, you've probably heard people talk about "Roundtables." What is a Roundtable? When is it? Where? Should I be going? Is the table actually round?
For monthly Roundtable content/files, look for this month's article in the links section of this page.
WHAT IS A ROUNDTABLE?
The monthly District Roundtable meeting provides an information and training forum for adults involved as leaders in the Scouting program. Parents and children are welcome to attend. These meetings allow the attendees from all parts of the Scouting program to:
Roundtables are open to all adults involved with the Scouting program. Registered leaders are especially encouraged to attend.
- Discuss topics of interest, both formally and informally
- Learn new skills and program topics for your unit
- Learn about upcoming District and Council events
- Meet and exchange ideas with other leaders from North Star District
THIS SOUNDS FUN! WHEN AND WHERE IS ROUNDTABLE?
It depends on your district. Roundtable is once a month, held in a central location. Each month we'll publish the discussion topics and links to related pages and documents along with current meeting locations; look under 'Documents' on this page for the link.
North Star District usually meet the first Thursday of every month at Holy Spirit Catholic Church, 1406 Randolph Avenue, Saint Paul, MN, 55116. Social time begins at 6:30pm, the meeting runs from 7:00pm - 8:30pm. Please check the calendar to verify meeting date.
SHOULD I BE GOING?
Yes! Roundtable is for everyone. We especially encourage at least one volunteer from every pack, every troop, and every crew attend monthly. We guarantee you will always come away with important information!
IS THE TABLE ACTUALLY ROUND?
Well, usually there are too many people present for everyone to fit around one table. But yes, all Roundtables do feature time for group discussion and sharing ideas.
