What is a Roundtable?

Roundtable is a monthly program offered by each District that gives leaders hands-on experience and provides a forum for leaders to offer and receive help from their fellow Scouters.  We’ll make some important announcements, share some program updates, and information on upcoming event schedules that apply to all leaders. Leaders are encouraged to share their questions and best practices. The sole purpose of Roundtable is helping you, the Scout volunteers and leaders.
